Sustainable Housing, Habitat and Energy Solutions for Urban Poor

Seven out of every ten houses are constructed by people themselves in India. When poor build their own houses, they tend to remain inadequate because they are built incrementally as per availability of capital (savings or credit) and a paucity of pro-poor market-based solutions. It is imperative to engage with poor communities to design solutions and mainstream them into market-based solutions. Mahila Housing Trust shares interventions in sustainable housing, generating actionable knowledge.
