The Centre for Affordable Housing Finance in Africa is seeking submissions for a research project quantifying residential rental markets in Africa. Submissions due by 12h00 on 06 January 2017, and should be sent by email to samuel[at]

The aim of this research is to lay the foundation for improved data, information and analytics for the residential retail market, while also exploring key opportunities relating to finance and policy for growing the sector. The research will establish a framework for quantifying the rental market, and its submarkets. Using this framework, the research will then quantify the market, collecting and aggregating available data and developing a baseline for ongoing monitoring and tracking. We are interested both in informal and formal rental practice, and the basis on which each exist. From this baseline review, we also hope the project will set the agenda for further research and interventions both in terms of the financing of affordable rental across Africa and in its multiple forms, and key policy interventions that would support its sustainable growth.
