Like food and clothing, housing is part of the primary needs of every human being and is therefore a major concern for all countries, particularly African countries. However, access to decent housing is a real challenge due to a growing demand linked to the demographic explosion on the one hand, and a supply that is struggling to adapt to this rapid evolution on the other hand. Indeed, according to UN projections, Africa’s population is expected to double by 2050. This phenomenon will be accompanied by greater urbanisation and consequently increased demand not only for housing, i.e. residential real estate, but also for commercial real estate, industrial real estate, or office real estate. The real estate market thus presents a strong growth potential that we would like to promote at this forum.
