ME-T1202 : Preparation of the Ecohouse Housing Program
Project Status: Closed
The objective of this Technical Cooperation program is to support the preparation, design and eventually implementation SHF's Energy-Efficient Housing Program, that will include a loan and a technical cooperation package, currently under preparation to be financed with resources of the CTF. The general objective of the program is to enable SHF to support its clients, namely financial intermediaries, in the development of financing products and services to support a transformational shift towards a low-carbon housing market. As part of the program it is envisioned: (i) the reinforcement of the capacities of the housing industry and housing finance institutions for the financing and construction of energy efficient housing, (ii) the creation of a certification system for energy efficient housing (including the creation of a brand or seal), (iii) the dissemination among the industry players and the general population, and d) the promotion of its use as a benchmark for growth of this type of housing. The Program will also disseminate to the population the advantages of energy efficient homes and develop proposed standards for energy efficiency criteria.
