The most spectacular change in Sub-Saharan Africa over the last few decades has been the dramatic demographic shift from
rural areas to cities. As a result, more than 50 percent of the city streets in the region have no names or addresses,
and the problem is particularly acute in the poorest neighborhoods. 'Street Addressing and the Management of Cities'
reviews the role of addressing within the array of urban management tools and explores the links between addressing and
civic identity, urban information systems, support to municipal services, tax systems, land management and tenure
issues, slum upgrading, support to concessionary services, and economic development. The book outlines current and
future applications, highlights practices in many African countries, and offers a methodological guide for implementing
street addressing initiatives that is widely applicable in other parts of the world.
