The Informal City: Rethinking the Urban Informal Sector in Harare

/The effect of increased urbanization has been, and continues to be, a fundamental change in the socio-economic environment of human activities, through new forms of employment, economic activity and lifestyle. The informal sector has become ingrained in the urban development matrix of Harare, although it continues to experience all sorts of challenges. This policy brief outlines the need for Harare City Council to urgently plan for, and create a vibrant informal sector enterprise that embraces the City’s vision of being a world class city by 2025. On the backdrop of a continuously declining formal sector, it is critical to consider integration of the informal sector into city development as the sector has become a magnetic pool of livelihood for the majority city dwellers.
