Building Africa’s Housing Financing Chain



The realisation of effective housing markets in Africa is dependent on appropriately targeted housing finance products that improve housing affordability and overcome the constraints in access that make adequate housing unaffordable to the vast majority. Finance is integral to every link in the housing delivery chain. While a key focus must be on access to end-user finance (whether mortgage or non-mortgage), construction or developer finance¬¬ is equally critical, and a quality investment environment that recognizes the opportunity to be found in affordable housing. Together, these form a functioning finance chain that is critical to supporting housing – an enabling macro-environment; the presence, interest and capacity of investors; and the engagement of financiers.

The 34th African Union for Housing Finance Conference under the theme, “Building Africa’s Housing Financing Chain” brought together key players in Africa’s housing and finance industries to explore the points where they meet. Focusing on the different stages where finance comes to play in the delivery and management of affordable housing, the conference brought together investors and financiers, developers, building material suppliers, professionals and policy makers to deliberate on the challenges and explore opportunities. Case studies from across the continent were presented, with specific focus on the issues these raise for the UEMOA region. Co-hosted by the AUHF, the Making Finance Work for Africa (MFWA), International Finance Corporation (IFC), Caisse Régionale De Refinancement Hypothécaire (CRRH-UEMOA), and African Development Bank (AfDB),the conference concluded with an Abidjan Declaration, to be signed by the members of the African Union for Housing Finance, setting out key issues for attention to build Africa’s housing financing chain at all its levels.
