Housing Finance in Africa Yearbook

https://housingfinanceafrica.org/projects/housing-finance-yearbook/

The Housing Finance in Africa Yearbook is an annual publication by the Centre for Affordable Housing Finance in Africa (CAHF), produced with contributions of over 63 authors and co-authors, mostly local experts based in country. The Yearbook provides housing finance practitioners, investors, developers, researchers, government officials and other stakeholders with the latest developments in the housing finance sector for each country.

This year, 2022, marks our 13th edition of this publication. Each year we endeavor to improve the quality of the content, the scope of the data, and the sharpness and clarity of the country profiles. Following on the COP27 Conference in Cairo, the 2022 Yearbook includes a focus on climate change, in addition to the usual review of practice and developments in housing finance and delivery in Africa over the past year. We have also weaved in a greater focus on women and tried to access gender-disaggregated data where it is available. Apart from the inclusion of gender and climate issues in the profiles themselves, we have also added key indicators to track vulnerability to climate change and women’s access to tenure and finance in the regional infographic pages as well as the Key Figures box in each profile. The intention is to better understand the impact of gender and climate issues in the sector, and to track progress in how this is addressed.

Of course, the Yearbook is not comprehensive, neither in the scope of countries covered nor the data provided. It is intended as an introduction, with the hopes that the detail provided will whet the appetite for more. CAHF invites readers to provide comment, and share data and what they are doing in housing finance in Africa (email alison@housingfinanceafrica.org)
