Play • 19 min

Urbanization is steadily on the increase in Africa, and this has brought about rapid population explosion in African cities.

The continent cannot officially meet up with the housing and infrastructural demands of the burgeoning population.

This edition of Africa's Story Podcast Series by Blaze Inc. explored the challenges and the opportunities within Africa's Housing sector - and the role Technology can play to ameliorate the housing crisis.

  • I began by analyzing the current challenges posed by rapid urbanization in Africa.
  • After that, I identified housing as a catalytic tool for socio-economic growth.
  • I outlined the Existing Constraints and Industry Challenges in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) sector in Africa.
  • I also outlined the Untapped Potentials from the urbanization challenges — part of which is a Holistic Approach by the government and International Supports from global organisations.
  • Finally, I outlined the role of Technology in housing delivery across African Cities.
