Abstract:
Shelter is one of the basic human needs. Being a dynamic need that changes with society's socio-economic development and circumstances its role varies from one society to another, and with time. In addition to providing protection against environmental elements, housing provides privacy, security, gives opportunities for rest, relaxation and creativity, and it is a source of income to many households. The spread of informal settlements in urban areas of Uganda is becoming an issue of serious concern to policy makers, local authorities, academicians, and the general public. Rapid urbanisation in Uganda, though a recent phenomenon that has been experienced in the last 20 years, has had the effect of facilitating the urban sprawl in places such as Kampala, the capital city.
