Collective Housing Case Studies in Asia
INDIA - Markandeya Cooperative Housing Society - 1998
This historic on-site housing reconstruction project, in Mumbai's Dharavi slum, was the Alliance's first experience with a multi-story building and the first to bring the Mahila Milan's sensible 14-foot house design - with an internal loft - into an apartment building. The project met just about every obstacle in the book and took ten years to complete.
MONGOLIA - Tunkheliin Hugjil - 2009
In this project, in a small timber-cutting town in the mountains of north-central Mongolia, ten families got together and completely rebuilt their dilapidated workers housing, using energy-efficient techniques, on land provided free by the government.
MYANMAR - Pan Thazin - 2013
This little housing project for 30 poor families of squatters and room-renters, in Yangon's North Okkalapa Township, was the second to be built by women savings group members, with support from Women for the World.
MYANMAR - Mae Myit Thar - 2020
This large housing project for 264 poor families of squatters and room-renters, in Yangon's Shwepyitha Township, was the first to be built under the new collaborative Mae Myit Thar housing scheme, in which the government provided free land to allow the collective and community-driven housing model already developed in 12 other projects to scale up, with support from the local NGO Women for the World.
THAILAND - Kalae Tapae - 2008
This case study describes a seminal upgrading project planned and carried out by an old but vulnerable Muslim fishing community on the Bang Nara River in Narathiwat, in southern Thailand, during a very difficult time of civil conflict in the area.
