    Abstract Sustainable and affordable housing is critical for achieving SDG 11 (sustainable cities & communities). Housing policy should support environmentally sound housing that considers socio-cultural and economic issues. Integration of technology and sustainable design is increasingly important for sustainable consumption and production in the sector. Community acceptance of such innovations can be a catalyst for a smooth transition to sustainable housing if supported by policies. Recommendations: - Apply adaptive policy pathways to incorporate flexibility into decision-making for sustainable low-income housing policy - Utilise social and environmental criteria in site selection along with economic viability - Conduct participatory planning to understand and incorporate residents’ needs in housing design - Facilitate community ownership and institutionalised participation in project planning - Foster sustainability consciousness among residents and the local community through capacity building and communication.
