Impact of peripheral urban land acquisition on indigenous communities' livelihood and environment around Uluguru mountains, Tanzania (RICS)
Published November 2008
This report looks at the impact of peripheral urban land acquisition on indigenous communities' livelihood and environment around the Uluguru Mountains in Morogoro, Tanzania. It was carried out in four wards in Morogoro Municipality, Tanzania between April and September 2008.
This research has shown that land is increasingly becoming a market commodity in Morogoro Municipality and its market value is rapidly appreciating, resulting in stiff competition for the resource. Land speculation in the municipality is increasing, although there are minimal government efforts to discourage this activity, which has resulted in prices increasing beyond the reach of the majority of the local population.
