Abstract
While more often than not, ‘housing’ is defined as a basic need which provides family access to shelter and basic amenities, also enabling the creation of demand for resources, physical infrastructure, labour, technology, finance, and land. Housing is a physical manifestation of social and cultural practices and forms an integral part of the assessment of the development and health of an economy. Thus housing refers not only to the physical structure of a house but its forward and backward linkages to job creation, resource requirements, institutional and regulatory systems, supporting infrastructure, services, and social cohesion.
