Abstract:The emphasis in the present paper is on rural settlement patterns which are defined as 'settlements whose occupants are chiefly engaged in maintaining a livelihood directly from the manipulation and utilisation of the 'physical' landscape'. Traditional settlement patterns as found in three basic, more or less representative regions - coastal, highlands, and pastoralist and semi-pastoralist zones - are described as background to the present situation and the new settlement pattern which is emerging as a result of ujamaa policy. ref.
