This paper aims to establish some kind of baseline on the sources and characteristics of housing finance in the public and private sectors of the economy. In terms of housing finance the coverage is intended to be fairly extensive although most of, the empirical examples will unfortunately be limited largely to the three East African countries, with which the writer is most familiar. Other material will be incorporated where possible, but this is limited largely to current literature, where much of the information is likely to be dated.
