View all copies of this ISBN edition:
 
 

The provision of affordable but adequate housing has been a struggle for many governments in both the developed and developing countries regardless of the enormous economic and social benefits that come with it. For developing countries and Ghana in particular, the difficulties have been with finance, land administration, policy intents and regulation, and ever rising population growth in the context of low economic growth, widespread poverty, inaccessible formal mortgage and cultural predispositions. The result is severe housing deprivation in both quality and quantity across space for all demand groups.Fortunately, experiences elsewhere in Europe offer useful applications and warnings as well. It is for this reasons that this book comes in handy. It provides an understanding of the housing situation in Ghana and proposes a contextualized application of good practices from the housing laboratories of European countries to the questions in Ghana. It is therefore useful for professionals in the housing sector, academics and students in housing studies, urban development and policy studies and certainly any one interested in housing development in Ghana.
