Stocktaking of the Housing Sector in Sub-Saharan Africa

  • City: N/a
  • Client: The World Bank
  • Country: Nigeria, Ethiopia, and Cameroon
  • Date: 2014

AHI produced three country case reports and one regional report for the World Bank that takes stock of the housing sector in Sub-Saharan Africa. The team mined existing data and engaged in fieldwork with the objective of enhancing evidence-based knowledge of the housing sector and expanding the understanding of the relative importance of the supply/demand determinants for affordable housing in SSA, with in-depth case studies for Nigeria, Cameroon, and Ethiopia. The reports are geared towards exploring the dominance of the informal housing sector in the region and providing a foundation for effective policymaking.

The final regional report, compiled and edited by the World Bank team, can be found here.
