Housing Practices is an ongoing series that documents the experiences of countries who are implementing large-scale affordable housing programmes. It is a flagship series developed and produced by the Housing Policy Section of UNHABITAT, which provides authoritative and independent documentation of innovative affordable housing programmes in countries of the developing world. Rather than drawing from theory or abstract models, Housing Practices addresses the demand for practical guidance on housing programmes based on experience. Each volume holistically documents one ‘best-practice’ housing programme that has achieved significant results. The volumes are thoroughly researched and presented in a way that clearly communicates the country’s housing sector context, the elements of the programme, key achievements and challenges, and suggestions for further programme improvement. Disseminating up-to-date information on country-specific large-scale housing programmes is vital to reveal to other developing countries the programmatic opportunities for addressing their housing shortages, reducing slum formation and growth, and improving the housing conditions of their citizens.
