Understanding the global housing crisis and the many policies that have attempted to remedy it is essential to finding, as we might say, a way forward. The Way Forward Housing Coalition’s Evidence Center is a tool where affordable housing policymakers and researchers can access real-world examples of housing policies – from solutions to cautionary tales. With a focus on emerging market countries across the globe, the Evidence Center provides insight into what works where, and what lessons we can take away from these policies.
Each piece of evidence contains a policy summary, along with a link to the original source document if you are interested in learning more. Cutting across topics of land, finance, development, public-private partnerships, green housing, and more, the Evidence Center is a database of diverse policy examples to help you reimagine the housing sector as central to economic growth, social equity, and environmental sustainability and resilience.
The Evidence Center is powered by the Terwilliger Center for Innovation in Shelter.
