Conceptually, the study posits that the link between affordable housing and slums is affordability, whereby both find significant demand among low-income earners. It argues further that while affordable housing can decay into slums, slums can be rebuilt into decent affordable housing. Underpinned by this conceptual thinking, the study assessed various affordable housing projects in Enugu Nigeria, and concluded that lapses in the implementation of Nigeria’s affordable housing policy have created a regressive phenomenon where many affordable housing projects have turned slums. This work contributes to the SDGs and discourse on housing delivery and informal settlement in developing countries, by recommending planning and participatory approaches to housing policy implementation that is sustainable and devoid of creating fertile grounds for slums.

The PhD defense was chaired by Prof. Dr. rer. pol. Bing Zhu. The candidate gave a 20-minute presentation on his research findings, which was followed by a discussion session Assoc. Prof. Dr. Eugene Chigbu and Prof. Dr. Walter Timo de Vries.
