Dar es Salaam is one of the fastest growing cities in sub-Sahara Africa and might become a “mega-city” of over 10 millions residents by 2025. Part of this growth is due to important migratory flux, coming in particular from the DRC and Burundi, two countries facing some severe political crisis. Theses conflicts force many people to flee their homes and leave their origin territory for neighboring countries, as Tanzania. Most of them will settle at the borders of Dar es Salaam, making the city bigger and larger.
