Tanzania House Shortage

Tanzania: Govt Moves to Address House Shortage
CURBING shortages of houses in the country, currently estimated at 3 million will only be achieved through Public Private Partnership (PPP) and not the government alone, Vice-President Dr Mohammed Gharib Bilal, has stressed.

Demand for houses in Tanzania is estimated to be growing at an average of 200,000 housing units per annum and thus requiring huge investments to construct houses for the population.

"The government has taken various measures aimed at reducing the shortages by enacting and amending various legislations to create a conducive environment for the private sector to participate," Dr Bilal said.

The aim of the “empowering people. Award“ is to identify appropriate technical solutions in order to tackle basic needs in developing countries. But what are basic needs exactly?


In 1943, Abraham Maslow presented his well-known “hierarchy of needs”. According to his theory, people need food, water, sleep and warmth the most. These are considered to be basic needs and it is only when these basic physical requirements are met that individuals can progress to the next level, that of safety and security. Once these needs are fulfilled, interpersonal needs such as love and friendship, as well as the need for self-esteem and respect from others, can gain importance. Self-fulfilment and the realization of one’s own potential represent the top of the hierarchy.



What does Maslow tell us? Food, sanitation and shelter are not only mandatory preconditions for survival – they also lay the foundations for the personal developme…

Eliminating expensive transport cost, waste, rework, mortar between bricks or blocks, and very costly plaster or rendering.

moladi – Brickless Building System In order to challenge the huge cost of transport of bricks and blocks to a construction site, some contractors believed cost could be reduced by producing hydraulic formed brick and block on site using mobile manual or hydraulic machines.
