Shelter provision in Mogadishu: understanding politics for a more inclusive city
Working paper, 46 pages
This working paper presents findings and recommendations from research on access to shelter and services in Mogadishu, Somalia. It is part of a three-city study in East Africa also covering Nairobi, Kenya and Hawassa, Ethiopia. Guided by political economy analysis, the twoyear research project investigated why and how city dwellers make certain shelter choices, and generated recommendations to improve access to adequate shelter and basic services for the most vulnerable urban residents.
This project seeks to investigate systems of shelter provision in three East African cities – Nairobi in Kenya, Hawassa in Ethiopia and Mogadishu in Somalia – in order to generate new insights that can inform more inclusive, affordable shelter interventions
