In times of natural disaster or war, the issue of providing the population with housing flares up. Therefore, the targeted housing policy of the government is one of the factors of successful reconstruction and preservation of human capital.
At the time of writing this report, russia has destroyed Ukrainian homes worth over $54 billion and displaced 5 million people within the country alone. The housing issue for people with nowhere to return to must be resolved now, despite the war continuing.
In this document, we have collected eight stories about the provision of housing in countries that have experienced severe destruction. The described strategies and approaches cannot be transferred to Ukraine without additional study. However, the trends and miscalculations that have been revealed in these cases can be useful during reconstruction planning.
