Country Profiles on Housing and Land Management


image of Country Profiles on Housing and Land Management

This Country Profile on Uzbekistan’s housing and land management sectors, prepared at the request of the Government of Uzbekistan, is the 18th in the series. The Country Profile programme continues to focus on specific challenges or achievements in the housing and land management sectors that are particularly relevant to the country under review. In the case of Uzbekistan, these issues include housing policies and Government support measures for the construction of housing in rural areas; increased demand for housing of the fast-growing population; and depleted urban infrastructure inherited from the Soviet times.



Financial framework for housing and land management

Housing is a national priority for Uzbekistan, and Government policies aim to ensure sustainable growth of non-budgetary housing investment. Total housing investment in 2000-2012 increased by a factor of 46.6, to UZS 4.5 billion (4.67 per cent of GDP), while in 2013 it increased by another 28 per cent, to UZS 5.8 billion. Citizens' assets comprised 81.6 per cent of total investment in 2012, with bank loans accounting for 11.6 per cent and public funds for less than 1 per cent. Government investments are mainly intended to encourage model housing construction in rural areas, as highlighted above.
