Housing: Enabling Markets to Work

This paper articulates the housing policy of the World Bank as it has evolved during the 1980s and early 1990s and proposes a number of important new policy directions for both the Bank and its borrowers. It advocates the reform of government policies, institutions, and regulations to enable housing markets to work more efficiently, and a mov away from the limited, project-based support of public agencies engaged in the production and financing of housing.
