The city of Hawassa is growing fast, driven by the recent construction of a flagship industrial park which is expected to attract up to 60,000 workers by 2021. As the population expands, Hawassa’s shelter needs are becoming ever more acute: existing housing stock and government housing programmes and policies do not match demand. While informal settlements expand to absorb increasing demand from migrant workers and others, sustainable housing solutions are urgently needed for the city’s hundreds of thousands of residents. This briefing summarises findings of recent research into the shelter challenges faced by low-income and vulnerable groups in Hawassa and provides policy recommendations for relevant stakeholders across government, local communities, business and the donor community.
