Through a multipronged approach to demonstrate to the city how it will be able to efficiently address the issue of housing unaffordability in its specific land and labour market.

Also, it aims at framing policies, programs, and regulations that will provide assistance to households, living in substandard informal and formal housing but not catered by markets, to access decent affordable housing.
