Community-led housing in Yangon: An assessment of the Mae Myit Thar project by Marina Kolovou Kouri & Shoko Sakuma

This report is intended as a reflection on the community-led housing project Mae Myit Thar, implemented in Yangon, Myanmar, in 2019-2020. In just over one year since its emergence, the scheme counts three settlements in different townships of Yangon, providing housing to 1,000 urban poor families.

The objective of this research is to encourage a sustainable housing practice at scale and share the learnings of a long-established methodology.

The report is supported by the British Academy as a part of "Yangon Stories project" and urbaMonde, as part of the "Collective Housing Project".
