Regional Methodology on Mapping of Roma Housing
Regional Publications | 13 JAN 2020

The methodology is used to map the settlements with Roma population in need of
housing improvement. It provides for collecting the existing relevant data from
local and other institutions and the Roma community. By implementing the
methodology, geographic data are provided on each Roma settlement, along with
basic information on the level of development of the settlement, such as
existence and quality of infrastructure, predominant material used for building
of the housing units, legal status of the housing units, etc. The piloting of
the methodology has a two-fold purpose: 1) to provide the data for two
municipalities, that would be used afterwards as evidence for policy making; 2)
to build the local capacities and encourage a process of full coverage with the
housing mapping. The mapping is a part of a larger process that starts by
gathering evidence and may continue to cover the whole economy. It should feed
into the decision making processes, and particularly the decision on
legalisation of the individual houses, as well as on renovating the housing.
