Urbanization is the defining global phenomenon of this century. For the first time in history, more than half the world’s population lives in urban areas. This rapid demographic and spatial transformation may prove to be difficult for cities in developing countries, especially small- and medium-sized cities, where capacity is typically inadequate to cope with climate change, resource scarcity, slum growth and increased poverty, and safety and security concerns.

Increasing numbers of rural dwellers move to town in search of employment. They are driven by the scarcity of rural resources, and attracted by urban life. Since 1991, Namibia’s urban population more than doubled. At present, 42% of the country’s 2.1 million live in urban areas.
Namibia’s cities face severe challenges. As informal settlements of the marginalized poor grow in number and size, affluent suburbs also expand. Cities grow apart, spatially and socially, reflecting intensifying social inequalities of post- independence Namibian society.
