Envision a Brazil without favelas with Endeva’s new interview series on affordable housing

Endeva speaks to Ruban Selvanayagam of Fez Tá Pronto Construction System in Brazil. In this interview, Ruban speaks about his vision and suggestions for how favelas can one day be history in Brazil – replaced by affordable, high-quality housing.

This interview is the first in Endeva’s new interview series, “Inclusive Housing for All,” which will explore the topic of affordable housing for low-income markets. Ruban outlines the dysfunctional mainstream housing market dynamics leading to the launch of Brazil’s flagship social housing policy, Minha Casa, Minha Vida, and of challenges facing the scheme. He also gives insights on possible solutions, within a more holistic approach to BoP housing.
