Shelter provision in Mogadishu: understanding politics for a more inclusive city

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.
