Dar es Salaam is one of the fastest growing cities in Sub-Saharan Africa. Much of the urban growth is unplanned, leading to over-crowding and high pressure on public services and drainage systems. The city is frequently affected by floods, leading to high costs in terms of physical loss, as well as loss of life. Due to climate change, the situation is becoming more urgent as the population is increasingly exposed and vulnerable to frequent floods.
