  3. 3. “Currently, one-sixth of the world's population — one billion people — live in urban slums in emerging countries. In addition, virtually all net growth of 2.6 billion in world population between now and 2050 is projected to occur in these cities. In effect, relatively poor nations will need to build the equivalent of a city of more than one million people each week for the next 45 years. New market-based approaches to affordable housing are essential to reach the massive scale commensurate with this enormous demand. Modern corporations in the home-supply/building materials sector can create great value for households and capture a large share of these markets through forging “hybrid affordable housing value chains.” Successful affordable housing products package key inputs (e.g. technical assistance in design and construction, housing microcredit, quality building materials, financial planning etc.) to make the process shorter, less expensive, and more efficient. Typically however, corporations have little access to, understanding of, and trust of poor communities. Hence, corporations usually work best in these environments through partnering with local citizen-sector organizations.” — Dr. Bruce W. Ferguson, former Senior Housing and Urban Economist of the World Bank; Advisory Board of Global Urban Development Magazine, author of three books and 40 articles on housing and urban development in emerging countries and the US.
