GPA was commissioned by UN-HABITAT in August 2009 to undertake a national housing profile of Uganda. The project was undertaken in collaboration with local consultants based at Makerere University and involved extensive fieldwork, includinbg interviews with representatives of all key stakeholders in public, private and civil society sectors, household surveys in Kampala and the northern city of Gulu, plus a visit to Mbarara and detailed case studies of selected households and organising and making presentations at local and national workshops. Frequent discussions were held with senior officials at the Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development in Kampala. Geoff wishes to record his appreciation for help and information received from the Ministry, local consultants and staff at UN-HABITAT. It is hoped that the report will contribute to the formulation and implementation of housing policy in Uganda.
