Conceptualising the realities of cities in the global South is often characterised by ‘informality’ which continues to be key of the urban fabric. Transformation of cities to sustainability will most likely not attempt to deconstruct the informal but consider building on the lessons, knowledge, diverse socioecological infrastructure systems to bring decency and opportunities to majority urban dwellers.
We postulate that the informal is the city and this informal has demonstrated sustaining of livelihoods, provided diverse opportunities that create compelling reasons to rethink the city in sub Saharan Africa.
