The intent of this report is to establish a broad-brush understanding of the housing situation in Georgia, and provide strategic policy recommendations to inform Georgia’s Urban Strategy. Given the absence of adequate data or previous studies on housing in Georgia, the report does not claim to be a detailed sector analysis covering the three major pillars of housing including land, infrastructure, and finance. Rather, the findings of this document are derived from qualitative field research, and include those issues highlighted by takeholders (public agencies, private banks, housing developers, endusers, NGOs etc.) as the most critical. Accordingly, this report should be viewed as a starting point for the Government of Georgia to initiate a serious policy dialogue on housing.
