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.




Uzbekistan has adapted most of its laws and regulations since the transition from Soviet rule and is implementing many targeted national housing programmes. However, to ensure long-term sustainable development, it is vital to prioritize housing policies and develop a long-term housing development strategy. This will promote guidelines and targets for continued development of the housing and utilities sectors in conjunction with the long-term socio-economic development of the republic and its regions, population settlement patterns, sectoral and regional schemes of placement of productive forces, and other factors. It also will systematize all current and planned national programmes, initiatives and reforms, notably in cost of implementation.
