Cities for Adequate Housing: From Present Emergencies to a Future of Housing Justice

Housing | Human rights | Local Finance

UCLG Committee on Social Inclusion, Participatory Democracy and Human Rights (UCLG-CSIDPHR)

As the emergency housing policies of the COVID-19 pandemic come to an end, it is imperative to understand what enabled their implementation, how they could be sustained and the key elements, values and practices required for a future agenda of local policies for housing justice. Were the bold responses adopted only possible due to the expanded competences conferred to LRGs by emergency declarations? How could these be reinforced and sustained as a basis for a joint, local-level strategy to face a global, yet localized, housing emergency?
