Urban Housing

Since housing constitutes a significant component of social dimension of sustainable development, its adequacy in terms of quantity and quality plays a dominant role in gauging the level of development as well as indicating a person’s standard of living in a society. The need for an effective housing delivery mechanism to stimulate progressive urbanization in our cities thus constitutes a critical challenge to urban governance and development in Pakistan in general, and in Sindh in particular.

The prime objective of the Housing Policy is to get in-depth overview of existing housing scenario of the province and to cater for the present and future housing needs of the province, focusing on the following:

  • Improvement of overall housing conditions in Sindh
  • Improving Rural basic infrastructure
  • Low-cost affordable housing
  • Land Bank and its management
  • Housing Finance
  • Urban Renewal Program
  • Public Private Partnership
  • Rental Housing
  • Real Estate Management
  • Management of Heritage and local construction techniques
  • Improvement of Safety & Security for existing infrastructure and
