An Urban Lab Initiative
The Centre for Affordable Housing Finance in Africa (CAHF) and the University of Rwanda (UR) offered this proposal to direct an Urban Lab to interrogate how sustainable and affordable housing might be increased for low-income households in Rwanda.
CAHF is an independent nonprofit think tank working to support and grow housing markets in Africa for increased affordability. CAHF’s programme of work operates across three broad platforms – Knowledge Production, Advocacy and Market Development.
UR is the leading University in Rwanda that provides interdisciplinary, problem-based academic programmes and conducts research, aligned with Rwanda’s development needs.
This proposal sets out our understanding of the intentions for the Urban Lab, and then our approach to the activities. The proposal also sets out team members to be included, and clarifies the roles of the parties – of CAHF, based in Johannesburg, South Africa; and of the University of Rwanda, based in Kigali, Rwanda.Download the Project Proposal Here
