Kenya – Affordable Housing East Africa

30 Apr 2019

Affordable Housing East Africa

Rapid urbanisation, population growth and increasing affluence are just some of the contributing factors for a booming demand for housing in the region. Cities are growing. African based cities will dominate the list of those achieving megacity status over the next two decades. The accelerated urban transition means increasing numbers of citizens are looking for appropriate housing. Kenya’s own housing shortage is currently estimated to stand at 2 million units.

Open Africa, in partnership with Kenya Green Building Society, will host an exclusive round table discussion to explore the topic. The event has been specifically designed to bring together key stakeholders from across the regional built environment industry, to discuss the major challenges and opportunities. The full value-chain will be represented: Policy & Planning Specialists, key NGO’s, Developers, Financiers, Architects, Engineers, Real Estate Professionals and relevant sub-contractors.
