Quel potentiel pour les approches coopératives et collectives pour l’habitat populaire ? : Éléments du débat, grille d’analyse et exemples burkinabé et kenyan

Abstract : Cooperative and collective approaches to self-built popular housing are receiving renewed attention as housing needs are identified in African countries in rapid urban transition. Drawing on a discussion of the notion of "commons", this article points out three key issues that need to be taken into account if housing projects are to contribute to urban inclusion: securing land use rights, the participation of inhabitants in the design of local projects, and price controls that can contain land speculation. He then presents two empirical case studies, in Burkina Faso and Kenya. The limits and contradictions emanating from the land invite us to question the real scope of these experiments in contexts that remain favorable to the land-ownership approach, but also their potential to prefigure other ways of producing housing, supported by the inhabitants.
