This chapter is based on, and modified from, the article of the same title included in SUR: Sustainable Urban Regeneration Vol. 32 published by Centre for Sustainable Urban Regeneration (cSUR), The University of Tokyo. The study was conducted as part of a larger project on urbanization in Africa, sponsored by cSUR. The ideas presented in this chapter were developed thanks to the discussion with one of the colleagues there, Atsufumi Yokoi.
