Housing Finance for Sub-Saharan Africa
Sub-Saharan African faces a major housing challenge related to rapid urbanisation and new urban household formation. Formal housing construction has not kept up with urban growth, resulting in deteriorating conditions of the existing housing stock and growth in informal settlements. In order to scale up new formal construction, housing finance systems need to expand and innovate urgently. as a result, the course aims to provide senior policy makers, investors, developers and housing professionals with the necessary analytical tools and understanding to become constructive partners in improving and expanding housing finance systems in their countries.
