Housing Policy, Public Private, Service Delivery


The need for affordable and adequate housing has become a central issue in addressing the challenges of poverty and growth. It is a requirement for all communities and individuals, and it ranks second only to food in terms of their survival. The well-being of the community is greatly affected by the availability of adequate housing. It contributes to the overall health and well-being of the society and is regarded as the best form of historical and physical evidence of civilization. The availability of affordable and adequate housing is also a major issue that contributes to the overall health and well-being of the society. Over the years, the government has been providing various forms of public housing to its citizens. These include safe, secure, and sanitary housing for low, medium, and high-income households. In order to meet the goals of the United Nations, the government has been working toward making all cities, towns, and settlements safe, resilient, and sustainable by 2030. Unfortunately, due to various factors, the government has been unable to achieve this objective. To address this issue, the private-public partnership schemes launched by the government have been designed to provide affordable and adequate housing. The paper aims to investigate the various factors that affect the delivery of housing services in Lagos by examining the housing policies and practices related to the private-public partnership and housing sector in the city. It was revealed that the finance, land, and affordability of housing are some of the factors that influence the effectiveness of the private-public partnership schemes. It suggests that the government should pay more attention to the various agencies and institutions that are responsible for the delivery of housing to ensure that everyone has access to a proper place of residence.
