Project Description: 


The research objectives are as follows:

  1. To investigate the formal and informal systems through which people access shelter (land, secure tenure, housing and basic services) in each city and their relationship with deep-rooted political, economic, social and cultural conditions;
  2. To establish the ways in which low-income groups and other vulnerable populations (including women and girls, refugees and IDPs) are positioned within these systems;
  3. To identify realisable, targeted interventions that allow these groups to improve their access to shelter by exerting greater influence on governance processes and participating in the co-production of housing, secure tenure and basic services.
