Property Taxation and Economic Development  Lessons from Rwanda and Ethiopia

Since 1950 a rapid urban transition has occurred across the globe.  At that time, more than two-thirds of the global population lived in rural areas and less than one-third in urban settlements.  By 2050, the global population is predicted to be one-third rural and two-thirds urban, a reversal of the urban-rural balance in 100 years.  Most of the world’s fastest growing cities are in Asia and Africa, where the reversal is taking place even more rapidly and cities are expanding far more quickly than government capacities to cope with this transition.

Urbanisation is clearly correlated with economic growth, but that growth is often shared very unequally.  Contemporary rapid urban growth in Africa is generally accompanied by highly visible booms in property development and construction; but unlike the urbanisation that occurred in the ‘Global North’ this is not necessarily accompanied by industrialisation, and brings questionable benefits to urban dwellers outside of a narrow elite.
