Abstract This study examines sustainable housing development to address indigenous communities' socio-economic challenges in Wayanad, Kerala, India. The research aims to propose policy recommendations for promoting sustainable housing while addressing poverty. The methodology integrates field research and literature review findings to develop comprehensive insights. The study's novelty lies in its holistic approach, which integrates income, housing conditions, and community resilience. Findings suggest that community-driven initiatives and environmentally friendly construction techniques like rammed earth and cob construction can empower indigenous communities while fostering environmental stewardship. Policy recommendations emphasise community participation, climate responsiveness, and flexibility in dwelling unit plans to promote sustainable housing development. Overall, the study highlights the potential of sustainable housing to address socio-economic disparities and empower indigenous communities in Wayanad.
