This paper offers a summary of Habitat for Humanities to meeting the urban housing challenge.
Housing is central to achieving socially just, economically viable and ecologically healthy and sustainable cities, as envisioned in the New Urban Agenda and Sustainable Development Goals, particularly Goal 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities. Better-designed and better-managed cities contribute toward improved quality of life for urban residents and more sustainable and resilient urban areas. We cannot build better cities if we do not address the affordable housing challenge.
