Housing Market Dynamics in Africa

Produced in 2018 by the African Development Bank, Housing Market Dynamics in Africa  offers a comprehensive analysis of Africa’s housing context covering: the political economy of housing development, housing finance, land markets and infrastructure provision, challenges faced by the construction sector, and the imperatives of slum upgrading. The authors—El-hadj M. Bah, Zebebweliwai F. Geh, and Issa Faye—provide valuable insights into the relationship between housing, health, capital markets and economic growth and unpack the factors influencing market dynamics along the housing delivery value chain. The publication is thus a useful resource for practitioners and stakeholders grappling with rapid urbanization and housing backlogs on the continent.
