kholoud jamal J-MOUM.

Abstract


With the rapid increase in the world population, it became a necessity to exert more efforts to cover the, relatively, increasing demands. One of the most important needs is housing. As a fundamental human right, and a shelter from the external environmental threats, housing is taking a great concern from governments, investors, organizations, and individuals. The aim of this paper is to find the best way to establish low-cost houses regarding community assessing economic and health impact. In order to do so, I started gathering, summarizing, and comparing several papers that interpret the same issue from different points of views, presenting the different elements they dealt with. Moreover, proposing some solutions to make it more achievable in Saudi Arabia and to fill the gaps existed, linking between them, the solutions, and the newly appeared, followed, and spotlight events like suitability. Eventually, concluding with the discussion that will help to reach sustainable, affordable, economic, healthy low-cost housing, followed by an example that applies the final discussion results and conclusion.
