dc.description.abstract This study sought to investigate the causes of delays in housing delivery amongst low income households who are residents of the informal settlements of Tobias Hainyeko Constituency, Windhoek, Namibia. It also aimed to analyse the underlying challenges faced by low-income households when accessing formal housing units and decent shel ter. The study used mixed methods of a concurrent design. Interview guides, document reviews and observations were used to collect qualitative data, while structured ques tionnaires were used to collect quantitative data in a survey. The study conducted hy potheses tests using regression analysis to determine the relationship between housing delivery, a dependent variable and independent variables represented by the provision of serviced land as well as basic services such as refuse removal services provided to informal settlements of Tobias Hainyeko Constituency. Hypotheses test results showed a positive relationship between the provision of affordable housing and refuse removal services; and a strong positive-perfect relationship between provision of affordable housing and supply of serviced land to households. The study further revealed that provision of serviced land and the provision of refuse removal services are significantly associated with the provision of affordable housing. The study recommends a targeted intervention through adequate Government funding for upgrading of informal settle ments in Tobias Hainyeko Constituency to accelerate accessibility and delivery of ser viced land, also, basic services and formal housing units amongst low-income house holds. Furthermore, the study proposes a review of current policies and strategies in order to align them with addressing current housing challenges. Lastly, the study rec ommends future research to improve housing approaches and funding models to accel erate the delivery of decent housing units, basic services and infrastructure amongst households residing in other informal settlements and townships in Namibia en_US
