Master of Urban Housing
Faculty of Planning – CEPT University
Urban housing, apart from being a shelter, is seen as means of access to employment and livelihood, urban and community services, proximity to desirable neighbors. Majority of urban housing is supplied by the market where land and finance play a major role. Access to decent housing that is affordable for all is key to a habitable city. However, cities across the developed and developing countries are grappling with varying degrees of housing unaffordability as per the specifics of local land and labor markets. Policymaking and planning to ensure access to decent affordable housing for all income groups is a complex process and requires a multi-pronged approach.

It is only when such a multipronged approach is adopted, that cities will be able to efficiently address the issue of housing unaffordability in their specific land and labor market....
