|Abstract: ||The concern of most governments and decision makers, especially in the deve loping countries like Ghana, is about how to provide and manage adequate and decent housing for the middle and low income households. The co-operative
form of organisation is one of the approaches that have been adopted to meet this requirement in a number of countries.Unfortunately, co-operati ve housing societies have been in Ghana since 1956 but their contribution to the housing stock has been insignificant. This poor performance can be attributed to the method in which the co-operatives have been established and inadequate institutional arrangements for promoting and supporting them.This paper reviews Chana's experience and discusses issues and a procedure for promotion and establishment of effective and self-supporting co-operative housing societies in the country.|
