Making policy accessible and relevant to people

About

Affordable housing is a stated policy priority of the government, with the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana aiming to build 1 crore houses in urban India by 2022. However, because of the multi-dimensional nature of poverty, the impact of affordable housing policies on the urban poor is not well understood. Fields of View’s research will build a computational model that draws upon theories from complex adaptive social systems, development studies, and economics to drive a better design for affordable housing programmes.
