This Handbook introduces key economic and related concepts explaining the functioning of urban
land markets. You will find in this Handbook tools for engaging in a critical analysis of conventional
economics, particularly in the understanding of how African urban land markets work. Of great
importance is the understanding of how land use, supply and demand unfold in African context. It
provides a basis for strengthening urban policy in ways that enable poorer people in African cities
to access well-located living and work spaces.
This Handbook equips you with a better understanding of how interventions affect the market, and
also how markets affect, enable, constrain and shape interventions by governments, developers,
traditional authorities, banks, micro-lenders or any of its actors. It provides a sense of the dynamics
of the urban land market – how particular decisions in one sector affect other sectors. This
understanding provides practitioners in the field with a framework and tools to make informed
decisions when formulating policies or making recommendations.
