Namibia is undergoing a major transition from a mainly rural based towards a mainly urban based society. This transition is most visible by rapid urban growth, especially of informal settlements at the towns’ peripheries. While the national population growth rate is approximately 1.41 % (2011 census), informal settlement growth is between 8-15% per year, depending on the town (DWN 2017).
