A case study of a comprehensive housing ecosystem approach in Asunción, Paraguay.
Innovative, affordable housing solutions in any context require evidence-based community-, market- and policy level solutions that stem from a deeper analysis of the entire housing ecosystem. This includes understanding the housing market conditions; the policy environment; and the social, economic and environmental realities that communities face. Relevant assessments that identify constraints and optimize opportunities are essential for supporting the implementation of sustainable housing interventions, as is establishing strategic people-public-private partnerships.
