|Abstract||About 74% of the population in Mwanza City in North-western Tanzania lives in informal settlements. The unplanned settlements of Ilemela and Pasiansi wards are characterized by high population density, lack of basic social services and generally poor infrastructure. The Mwanza Urban Livelihood Programme of ACORD (Agency for Co-operation and Research in Development) started working with resource-poor|
urban households in the unplanned areas in 1999, through interventions focusing on increasing community access to micro-finance services, environmental sanitation and education, and on HIV/AIDS and gender issues.
