Housing accessibility in Malaysia

BASSAM KHAWAJA 2019/srpoverty.org

BFM takes a look at the housing situation in Malaysia and addresses some current issues.

First, it discusses reports that only four developers are capable of build-then-sell models – the most secure for first-time buyers. Then, it discusses whether affordable housing should be a human right. To conclude, it asks: how does the government enter the picture?

The guest speakers are Chaly Koh, CEO of UrbanMetry; E Parames, a representative from the Marhaen Urban Settlers Network; and Derek Fernandez, a Petaling Jaya city councillor and expert in planning and development control.

Produced by: Adeline Choong, Tasha Fusil, Loo Juosie and Alia Zefri
