Abstract

Housing provision is a physical process of creating and transferring a dwelling to its occupiers, its) subsequent use and physical reproduction and at the same time, a social process dominated by the economic interests involved. Government intervention through good housing policies is needed to deliver the housing provision for the nation, either by private sector or public sector means. What is needed in housing policies and their implementing mechanisms is to make a fundamental switch from a concern about housing as an output to an adequate housing input. In a world where more than one billion people continue to live in adequate housing conditions, the imperative of renewed attention to the realization of housing rights takes on urgency. There is, therefore, government has legal responsibilities to 'take steps by all appropriate means' to ensure the full and progressive realization of the human rights to adequate housing.
