Wainer and Ndengeyingoma Present on Best Practices in Affordable Housing in Kigali

RCHI Members Laura Wainer and Billy Ndengeyingoma recently collaborated with Sally Murray of the International Growth Centre on the report "Incremental housing, and other design principles for low-cost housing" in Kigali, Rwanda. To address Kigali's critical shortage of low-income housing, they explore the promise of incremental building, where unfinished houses on serviced plots are provided for beneficiaries to improve over time. Their project builds on previous work undertaken – 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.
