A thematic analysis to identify barriers, gaps, and challenges for the implementation of public-private-partnerships in housing
- Journal Article
Public-Private-Partnership is one of the holistic built-environment development and management approaches having all the processes under one roof, built-up with varied processes, and propagating improved performance. While PPPs are widely adopted in various building sectors such as institutional, healthcare, schools; this raises a question on its rare utilisation in the housing sector, confined to only limited countries. This paper, thereby, focuses on identifying key issues for implementation of PPP in the housing sector. It aims at exploring PPP for the linkages between the urban functioning, governance, and management for housing provision, addressing the pressing need of today's housing demand and delivery. The data was collected by a four-tier approach involving literature review, case studies, surveys, and focused interviews across Europe, which was analysed using the thematic analysis approach to arrive at the vital diagnosis in this paper. The results showcased a considerable potential for the housing PPP market and highlighted key structural, contextual, environmental, financial, and execution issues summarised in the form of barriers, gaps, and challenges, that are required to be dealt with at the policy, governance, and industry level.
