Geoff has been commissioned by the World Bank to contribute to a mission assessing housing and settlement policy in Vanuatu.
During a mission in September, 2014, Geoff worked with the Mission Leader, Rumana Huque, to:
i) undertake a quick assessment of the current status of housing provision;
ii) assess the current role and potential of the National Housing Corporation and;
iii) propose policy and strategy options, referencing international best practices, with regard to institutional roles between key stakeholders and identify potential directions for a national housing policy.
A report on the mission has been submitted to the Bank and Government of Vanuatu for consideration.
