The University of Lagos Unilag has concluded an arrangement to hold a master class on affordable housing at the forthcoming Africa International Housing Show.
The platform is the most credible and biggest construction industry platform in Africa.
The 24th to 27th July housing show is the 17th edition.
Confirming Unilag participation at the show, the Convener, Festus Adebayo said that the master class intends to provide academic support for practitioners in the housing sector.
He said the master class by the Unilag Center for Housing and Sustainable Development
would be on Research for Affordable Housing Policy and Delivery in Africa.
“This session targets affordable housing developers. It will provide a platform for exploring findings from academic research that can support practitioners’ housing projects, and policy directions required to support implementation,” he said.
He also said that there would be a panel discussion featuring presentations by seasoned practicing researchers on affordable housing.
Adebayo said various approaches will be presented, with ample time for interactions at solving specific issues raised by participants.
Besides, participants in the master class are expected to receive their certificates at the end of the program.
