This paper offers insights from a study of self-builders’ investments in informal land and housing in Dar es Salaam and Mwanza, two of the largest and fastest growingcities in Tanzania. The findings demonstrate that self-builders’ investmentsin informal land and self-built housing are inextricably linked with householdwealth accumulation processes and long-term security. In light of the researchfindings, the paper offers reflections on the potential impacts of ongoing landformalization processes. The paper argues that the informal housing system has far more advantages than appreciated by proponents of formalization, that the vision of bringing “dead capital” to life is misleading, and that the anticipated emergence of active formal markets for land and housing may not serve the needs or interests of low- and middle-income households.
