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.
This presentation on the role of housing in building the economy and the economy’s role in building housing provides a high-level overview of the HEVC model and methodology. It provides an update on preliminary findings from the study in Tanzania, Nigeria, Kenya, and South Africa.Download PDF
