The Housing Profile of Cuba is a unique report that reveals the structure and functioning of the housing sector in Cuba. The report is an excellent source to understand the evolution and ongoing transformation taking place in the housing sector in contemporary Cuba. The making of the report brought together key Cuban experts who prepared advanced chapters depicting the analysis of the institutional, legal and regulatory frameworks; the construction sector and building industry, the land and infrastructure sectors, labor, the housing finance sector, the demographics, and the demand and supply of the housing market. A series of consultative workshops involving several institutions, experts, scholars and policy makers discussed and validated the research, data and reports that resulted into a 400-page report which forms the basis of the Executive Version of the Housing Profile of Cuba.
