A Methodology for Evaluating Housing Programs in Egypt

Mohamed Badr *, Mohamed Shehata
Faculty of Urban & Regional Planning, Cairo University, Cairo, Egypt


The recent period has witnessed significant theoretical developments in the area of evaluation, with its various types and tools, as well as approaches used in its implementation, which are used in various fields, particularly in urban planning. Although there has been a breakthrough achieved in the use of these tools globally and internationally, there is no way to apply them to Egyptian urban patterns in general and the housing sector in particular. This research paper aims at proposing a methodology for evaluating housing programs in Egypt, focusing on low-income housing programs prioritized by the state. This methodology is designed in stages based on studying global applications in evaluating low-income housing programs and concluding the most important steps and tools used in this regard, as well as the appropriate evaluation approach for each case; economic, social, environmental or technological to reach a theoretical methodology for evaluating housing programs that are appropriate to the Egyptian case. Then this methodology is reviewed and checked by experts and specialists, as well as by a group of administrative authorities in the State concerned with the application of housing programs in Egypt, through interviews therewith to consult them and ask for their views on the preliminary methodology in order to take them into account in the creation of the final methodology.
