HOUSING MARKET DEMAND, HOUSING FINANCE, AND HOUSING PREFERENCES FOR THE CITY OF KIGALI

Date October 2012 File size 1.9 MBDoc Type Report

This study was prepared for the City of Kigali, Rwanda and investigated the need for housing in the city. The report aims to provide some understanding of the housing market to establish the volume of affordable housing required. The focus on affordable housing, however, responds primarily to the political will of the City of Kigali and of the Rwanda Housing Authority (RHA), to promote access to housing for the widest possible segment of the market, seeking to create a sustainable and harmonious process of urban growth.
