Best practice for implementing affordable housing in Kigali

Kigali has a critical shortage of low income housing. One method to bring down housing costs substantially is incremental building, where unfinished houses on serviced plots are provided for beneficiaries to improve over time. The project builds on previous work undertake – including a two-day stakeholder workshop – to provide a policy brief for key stakeholders in affordable housing development in Rwanda, particularly the Rwanda Housing Authority, and to build a longer-term research partnership between the IGC, the RHA, and the researchers.
