Call for Proposals: Data Collection on Nairobi Metropolitan Area (NMA) Housing Supply.

The Open Access Initiative is a joint venture market systems intervention spearheaded by Centre for Affordable Housing Finance in Africa (CAHF), FSDAfrica Investments, FSDKenya, Reall and International Housing Solutions (IHS). The Initiative is about market development. The intention is to build and support a more competitive environment in which a range of market players see (and can act on) opportunities to invest, while raising the bar on quality and long-term sustainability. The Initiative follows a process that involves four main steps: data collection, assembly, the production and delivery of outputs, and then advocacy and dissemination engagement.

As part of the Initiative, CAHF has partnered with FSD Kenya to create an affordable housing knowledge platform which includes a housing supply dashboard. It shows the distribution of approximately 18,000 housing units within the Nairobi Metropolitan Area, and covers four of the five counties in the metro- Nairobi, Kiambu, Kajiado and Machakos counties. The dashboard is live and already loaded with data collected in 2019 and 2021.

CAHF wishes to update the database to 2022. This will involve collecting updated data for projects already covered in both 2019 and 2021, as well as collecting data for all other missing/new developments.

CAHF is thus seeking consultants and/or researchers who are highly knowledgeable in the housing sector, to undertake the data collection. They MUST be based in Kenya and familiar with the Nairobi Metropolitan Area. The consultant can be an individual(s) or team/firm.
