Collective Housing Case Studies in Asia
CAMBODIA - Akphivat Mean Cheay - 2000
This roadside squatter community planned and built their own resettlement housing project, and showed a war-torn Cambodia how housing problems can be solved better by partnership, not by eviction.
CAMBODIA - Pro Lay Toek - 2012
The on-site upgrading of the Pro Lay Toek, a canal-side squatter settlement, was the first chance for the provincial city of Neak Loeung to see what a collaborative, community-managed housing project looks like.
INDIA - Sanjaynagar - 2020
India has some enormous housing programs for the millions living in slums.  But thee subsidies those programs offer mostly go to developers, who build dystopian housing complexes that are badly designed, poorly built, far from everything and unaffordable to most of the people they are supposed to benefit.  This project, in the city of Ahmednagar, is using government subsidies in a very different way, to show how when communities form cooperatives and are assisted to collectively design and rebuild their housing in-situ, the results can be fine-tuned to people’s real needs and will be more likely to enhance the social support systems that already exist within communities than to destroy them. 
INDIA - IHSDP in Sangli, Miraj & Kupwad - 2015
This case study describes a citywide land readjustment housing project in which 22 slum communities moved to 7 existing slum communities (all within 3-4 kms of the old settlements) and redeveloped their housing in 4-story walk-up flats, with the public land being leased by the cooperative housing societies set up in each building.
INDIA - Kamgaar Putala - 2005
This case study describes the community-driven resettlement of 176 flood-affected riverside squatter families in Pune to free government land and new housing located 8 kms away, with collective land
