The PAHP is designed to support and deliver Naya Pakistan Housing Program (NPHP) that aims to provide 5 million housing units across the country. The PAHP is a five-year program (2022-27), and will focus on: (a) promoting private sector participation in affordable housing provision through infrastructure investment support; (b) strengthening institutions with critical roles in housing policy and programs; (c) deepening housing sector regulatory reforms and operationalizing them through strengthened systems; (d) promoting livability and sustainability of housing through climate resilient and energy efficient infrastructure investments; and (e) improving the affordability of housing. Thus, PAHP will support and enable the housing sector to offer more affordable housing units across the province within private and public sector housing schemes. The program is designed to address and support housing needs in urban centers and peri-urban areas while considering the housing market dynamics and supply-demand gaps, and a multidimension selection criteria for the location of housing schemes and infrastructure investments will be developed to ensure sustainable and resilient housing development.
