This report consists of secondary cities case studies in five countries - Cote
d'Ivoire,Kenya, Nigeria, Zaire and Zimbabwe. All the case studies have
shown the important role played by traditional "informal" institutions and
community organizations in catering to the needs of urban residents. Thus,
the report identifies methods of enabling the participation of traditional and
community-based organizations within the existing institutional framework,
in order to maximize the social well-being of urban residents. The
recommendations contained in the last chapter of the report could form the
basis of "general guidelines" for improving the urban management of
secondary cities in sub-Saharan Africa, better suited to local culture and
circumstances and therefore, hopefully, more effective.
