An Evaluation of Low Cost Housing Provision in Zambia
A complex world often requires clear solutions.
But if a problem persists, then there is cause for an investigation or an evaluation.
This book set out to do just that.
There had been a housing shortage in Zambia and there was need to counter this housing problem and shortage by way of policy, thus the Zambia National Housing Policy was formulated.
However, the housing problem still exists, the housing backlog has kept increasing for decades after its formulation and implementation, and the intended results of the Zambia National Housing Policy remain unknown.
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the private sector, government and non-governmental organisation's participation in the provision of low cost housing in Zambia.
This was done in order to help shed more insight into the housing problem and provide applicable solutions and recommendations on how to best address it.
Whether you are novice in housing or an expert in the field of housing, this book is set to take you on an educative and informative journey on housing issues.
