SIV – Climate Resilient and Green Housing Platform for Africa

Social Infra Ventures Africa (“SIV”) is a climate-resilient, green and gender-responsive housing platform for North, West and East Africa. Given (i) the near doubling of Africa’s population by 2050 to 2.5bln people, (ii) an increase in the continent’s urbanization rate from 40% to 60%, and (iii) the disproportional impact of climate change on African countries, SIV seeks to offer a low-cost and sustainable solution for the growing housing gap at the base of the pyramid.

The Project is to launch and scale SIV’s development and rental operations in the Kingdom of Morocco (Phase 1), before replicating the concept in other North and West African countries from year 5 onwards (Phase 2, not part of this application).
