Rural Housing

Market Transformation for Sustainable Rural Housing

Project summary:

The project objective is to provide Uzbekistan’s rural population with improved, affordable and environmentally friendly living conditions. The project seeks to transform the rapidly growing rural housing sector in Uzbekistan towards a more sustainable and low-carbon development pathway by designing, piloting and scaling-up a green mortgage market mechanism, which will boost the demand for low-carbon housing among the Uzbek rural population.

Expected results:

  • Introduce a green mortgage scheme for rural housing;
  • Strengthen domestic supply chain and the capacity to design and construct energy efficient (EE) and low-carbon housing;
  • Strengthen policies and regulations, particularly building codes for rural housing and rural settlements;
  • Raise public awareness about benefits and advantages of EE and low-carbon housing.
