KADK, DEPT. OF HUMAN SETTLEMENTS  / DENMARK: KAYA MAXAQUENE, MAPUTO, 2015 Maputo, like many other African cities, is characterized by its divisions between the formal and the informal areas. These divisions are manifested physically, socially and culturally. The informal and poor neighbourhoods (bairros) often characterized by slum houses 75% of Maputo’s population of 4 million. Almost all the houses are in one storey, and the access approaches are small lanes. The roads are not asphalted and are impassable in the rainy season. Most houses have water and electricity, but there are no sewers. There are few open areas and few public institutions. Trading takes place in the street area from simple stalls or booths. In the bairros there are three primary home types: Casas de Blocos, Casas de Madeira e Zinco and Casas de Caniço.
