Abstract:The UN (2008) reports that more than one third of the growing urban population in developing countries is living in slum conditions. Lizarralde and Root (2008) show that urban low-cost housing policies in developing countries are often inefficient and could even lead to further market distortions. Their case studies in South Africa prove that the informal construction sector, the only sector that is able to meet the needs of low-cost housing, is often prevented from being involved. To realise greater participation of the informal construction sector and thus better meet the needs in low-cost housing, public-private partnerships (PPPs) are often mentioned in literature as a more promising way than present methods (Ha (2001), Browning (2000)). However, there is a gap in literature in how to realise these partnerships. Literature describes several types of partnerships but it is unclear on what grounds a certain type should be chosen. This article will describe how to select the right type of partnership.
