CAHF Community of Practice: the economic value chain for housing

From the 30-31 August 2018, CAHF held its first Community of Practice Meeting with the theme, “Impact of Housing on the Economy”. The meeting brought together our network of consultants from across the continent to deliberate on the role of the housing sector on the broader economy of their countries. The meeting commenced with a technical overview of CAHF’s Housing Economic Value Chain (HEVC) work which outlined the value chain modeling methodology and how it has been adapted to measure the economic impact of the construction and rental of housing.

In this presentation, Keith Lockwood presented an overview of value chain modeling, how it can be used in measuring the economic multipliers of the housing sector as well as results from housing economic modeling exercises in Kenya, Rwanda, and South Africa.
