GYODER, the Turkish Association of Real Estate Investment Companies, recognized the growing threat of an affordable housing shortage in Turkey. Unsure of how to address this housing problem, GYODER hired AHI to conduct a comprehensive analysis of Turkey's housing ecosystem and a plan to improve access to affordable housing. Over nine months, AHI's US and Turkish staff reviewed extensive materials and interviewed dozens of stakeholders to assess the Turkish housing ecosystem. A country-wide review of existing housing policies and concrete recommendations for future housing programs were synthesized in a 111-page study: "Affordable Housing in Turkey: Country Assessment and Recommendations."
