UN-HABITAT launches important study on rental housing  
, 7 Jan 04
As the culmination of a two years research project UN-HABITAT has published a 250 page study entitled “Rental housing: An essential option for the urban poor in developing countries”. The study notes that despite the fact that a large proportion of residents in cities and towns of developed and developing countries are tenants, the number of governments actually trying to support rental housing development is rather small. In fact, the important role played by the rental sector is barely, if at all acknowledged in many national housing policies. A major reason for this bias against rental housing is the general ideology that homeownership is essential for housing development and that owners are better citizens than renters.
