Given vast differences in governance systems and the context of urbanization, a variety of approaches to addressing housing challenges is expected. From land sharing schemes in Cambodia, to inclusionary zoning in Indonesia, to the housing provident fund in China, a multitude of innovations in housing policies have potential benefits outside their country of origin. In order to bring a comparative lens to the topic and critically assess policies' potential transferability, the International Journal of Housing Policy (IJHP) is sponsoring a panel at the UAA conference in Miami on Housing Policy Innovations in the Global South. The panel is composed of five papers that address issues associated with the specific context and transferability of housing policies across diverse regions in the global south. The first paper addresses problems associated with low income condominiums and the administration of common property, drawing on case studies in South American cities. The second paper also focuses on market orientated housing policy transformations, with an emphasis on Brazil and the implementation of the MInha Casa MInha Vida Program. The third paper takes a more global approach looking at the implementations of micro units as a means to deal with housing affordability and supply problems. Papers four and five meanwhile turn attention to improving the living conditions of very low income households and families in india. While the first deals with community led slum upgrading, the second considers squatter housing and its role in disaster recovery areas.
