Urban Lab Rwanda: Case Studies

The Urban Lab is a process supported by GIZ, MININFRA and the City of Kigali.  As part of the effort, we have reviewed both local and international case studies of already existing models for addressing the low-income population’s housing needs in different countries, globally.  The cases highlight different innovative approaches adopted to improve delivery, access and sustainability of relatively low-cost housing.  While each country differs in its structures, legal framework, social aspects, etc, the cases presented here provide valuable lessons that can be adopted and customized to support provision of housing also in Rwanda.  The case studies are drawn from Kenya, South Africa, Nepal, Ethiopia, Namibia Mozambique and Rwanda.  Click on the icons to down load the case studies.
