City limits: Urbanization and vulnerability in Sudan, 2011

Sudan is urbanising rapidly. Although the trend is not new (and is consistent with a trend towards greater urbanisation across Sub-Saharan Africa1), the pace in Sudan appears to be accelerating. For a country of its size Sudan has relatively few cities, which means that the population drift from rural areas is focused on a small number of urban centres.

Khartoum Urban Area A study on Urban Planning

At the end of the last century, the British colonial administration imposed a new trend of urbanization in the Sudan.  A new system of towns was also created.  These new towns have become different from the indigenous ones in their function and spatial organization.  The colonial urban policy was, of course, a reflection of the ideology of colonialism itself.

Political Economy and Urban Poverty in the Developing Countries  Lessons Learned from the Sudanese Experience

Urbanization is rapidly growing all over the world with a high rate of growth in the developing countries.  Several factors are presumed to be responsible for the unfolding of urban growth and urbanization processes, which include but are not limited to, massive rural-urban migration, imbalances in the provision of social services, change in land use policy, market liberalization, conflict, wars, natural disasters, and the consequences resulting from deficient economic policies and attendant practices.

Since the Second World War, a new interest has grown among American research scholars concerning the "backward or poor" countries of the world.  Consideration of these areas has changed.  This re-thinking has been both attitudinal and perceptual rather than material.  The "backward" became the "underdeveloped," and then finally the "developing."

Urbanisation in Sudan: Concept note for a study for DFID

Urbanisation is taking place at a rapid pace within Sudan.  Although the trend is not new, the pace appears to be accelerating.  For a country of its size, Sudan has relatively few cities; therefore the population drift from rural areas is focused on a small number of urban centres.  Sudan’s capital, Khartoum, has grown particularly fast – by a factor of eight between 1973 and 2005 (an average annual growth rate of over 6%).  Khartoum now has a population of over 5 million.

Figures from the recent population census in Sudan have not yet been officially released, which limits knowledge about the pace and scale of urbanisation elsewhere.
