This study delves into the complex issue of informal housing in Lafia, Nigeria, a city experiencing rapid urbanization. It investigates the factors influencing the formation and persistence of informal housing, drawing on demographic insights and extensive data collection. Key findings highlight the role of land tenure challenges, rapid urbanization, ineffective housing policies, and affordability issues in driving informal settlements. The study emphasizes the need for collaborative partnerships, policy reforms, community engagement, and affordable housing initiatives to address these challenges. By fostering transparency, land tenure security, and education, sustainable urban development in Lafia can be achieved. This research contributes to a more comprehensive understanding of informal housing challenges and informs evidence-based policy recommendations and interventions.
