Turning Flood Risk Into Economic Opportunity in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania (English)

After a decade of strong economic growth, Tanzania officially achieved lower-middle income status in 2019. Against this backdrop, however, the country and its economic hub Dar es Salaam continue to face growing threats from disasters and climate change. In response people from institutions and communities came together over participatory design sessions, supported by the World Bank, to chart a resilient path forward for this area of Dar es Salaam. The result was The Msimbazi opportunity plan, a comprehensive blueprint for transforming the Basin into a beacon of urban resilience. Building on this work, delegates from Dar es Salaam attended the 2018 Resilience planning workshop hosted by the World Bank’s City Resilience Program (CRP), in partnership with the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR). This edition of the workshop brought together representatives from fifteen cities in Sub-Saharan Africa. Cities were provided with support for their capital investment planning process and access to a platform for knowledge sharing and learning on urban planning, resilience, project development, and private capital mobilization.
