Fostering Inclusivity
and Resilience
Housing in Africa

The current state of housing highlights the urgent need for solutions in building truly sustainable and adequate housing through inclusive approaches. Moreover, the pandemic has shown that adequate and decent housing is central to public health. There is now an opportunity to place housing at the centre of economic recovery. Inclusive housing strategies that can trigger multiplier effects on inclusive economic growth, by providing safety and security while generating employment and consumption are critical.
