Housing Privatisation, Housing Management and Public Housing
This chapter provides an overview of housing reforms and their impact on the existing housing with a particular emphasis on progress towards the establishment of a competitive system of housing management. This is one of the critical areas for policy intervention due to the high share of multi-family housing in urban areas across the region. The argument advanced here is that housing management has been particularly slow in adjusting to the new market reality, both in the private and public housing stock. The challenges are multi-dimensional—technical, social and financial, making the task difficult. The comparative analysis explores the changes in housing management systems and some of the constraints for their efficient operation in the housing sector.
