Inclusionary housing is a means of using the planning system to create affordable housing and foster social inclusion by capturing resources created through the marketplace. The term refers to a program, regulation, or law that requires or provides incentives to private developers to incorporate affordable or social housing as a part of market-driven developments, either by incorporating the affordable housing into the same development, building it elsewhere, or contributing money or land for the production of social or affordable housing in lieu of construction.
This volume examines inclusionary housing programs in-depth in seven countries (United States, Canada, England, Ireland, France, Spain, and Italy) and reports on experiences in others, including South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, Israel, India, and Colombia.
