''Analysis of the efficiency of public policy on the supply of social housing in a poor country''
( 2018, Vol. 38 No.4 )
The objective of this article is to evaluate the technical efficiency of the national programme of supply of social housing in a poor country such as Cameroon. The study is based on a period of ten years. The programme involves 51 enterprises with 46 SMEs and 5 multinationals. The data used is from the state institution responsible for urbanisation and habitats. The efficiency frontier is evaluated using the Data Envelope Analysis (DEA). We calculate the scores of pure technical efficiency and efficiency of scale. We obtain the following results: a)-enterprises engaged in the realisation of the national programme of supply of social housing are 98% sub-optimal b)-the inefficiency observed is due to pure technical efficiency. These results reveal lapses in the management of available financial, technical and human resources. The causes can be related particularly to the lack of operational experience, insufficient training and the use of traditional techniques that are not adapted to the exigencies of efficiency.
Keywords: public policy, efficiency, social housing, production frontier
