The Housing Crisis in Central Asia

Background to the Mission 

Dutch Inter church Aid (DIA) has been working with problems related to homelessness and informal settlements in Almaty and Bishkek. In early 1995 it felt that it required professional advise on the subject. In this connection it contacted Habitat International Coalition (HIC) who in turn requested the Asian Coalition for Housing Rights (ACHR), a Bangkok based Asian NGO, for assistance. As a result, an ACHR mission to Central Asia was organised. No specific terms of reference were developed although certain directions were indicated in a fax from DIA to the mission members (see Appendix – 1). The mission was seen primarily as an exploratory one that would set certain directions that DIA could follow in the future.
