Housing in LAC



We would like to share information on one of the most pressing issues facing Latin America and the Caribbean — poverty housing, which encompasses a number of challenges, such as overcrowding, extremely limited access to land and the scarcity of adequate infrastructure.

In this way, we also hope to increase awareness and promote their right to live in a house worthy of being called a home.

Here are some studies you can download:

More than Houses (PDF): Depicts the impact that having a decent home has on Costa Rican families.
