Revision of the National Housing Policy

On 2021, a Task Team was formed including the Minsitry of Urban and Rural Development, the Ministry of Finance, the National Planning Commission, the National Housing Enterprise, the Namibia Housing Action Group, the Shack Dwellers Federation of Namibia and the Namibia University of Science and Technology, to propose a comprehensive and responsive revision to the National Housing Policy. You can see the terms of reference here.

At NUST, the process is led by Dr Phillip Luhl, Head of the Department of Architecture and Spatial Planning at NUST. The policy is now available for consultation, leading to a consultation event before the final draft is delivered to cabinet.

The draft policy (February 2022) can be downloaded here.

The questionnaire to provide input is available here.
