This city briefing presents findings from research on access to shelter and services in Mogadishu, Somalia, focusing specifically on vulnerabilities associated with gender and disability. It is part of a three-city study in East Africa also covering Nairobi, Kenya and Hawassa, Ethiopia. Guided by political economy analysis, the two-year 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.
