International models for delivery of affordable housing in Asia

The availability of adequate affordable housing is a concern for all Asian countries. A country's history, resource availability and its stage of economic development are key factors that influence the approach taken by Asian governments to provide and fund affordable housing for its people.

This insight paper aims to identify different national housing models across Asia for delivering affordable housing, in order to see what lessons may be transferable. It raises questions about acceptable standards of affordable housing for different socioeconomic conditions, including tenure security, construction standards and environmental/space standards.
