Needs Assessment of Social Housing in Albania
The Needs Assessment of Social Housing in Albania is conducted by UNDP in the framework of the United Nations Support to Social Inclusion in Albania programme, funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. The report provides evidence on the current state of social housing in the local governments of Albania. Some of the questions that are addressed are: Who applies for social housing? What are the differences between applicants and beneficiaries? How do local authorities address the problem of homelessness? How much do they invest in social housing? How do they characterize the relationship with the central government? Three case studies are presented. The evidence will inform the Housing Strategy and Action Plan of the Ministry of Urban Development and Tourism.
