National Consensus for Decent Habitat

Difficulties in the way of access to decent habitat seriously affect broad sectors of our country’s population, particularly those of middle and lower income. Decent habitat means universal access to land, housing, basic infrastructure, social facilities, services and spaces for work and production in a framework of respect for each community’s cultural and symbolic assets and for environmental conservation, according to the particularities of urban and rural settings. However, exclusionary market mechanisms have historically been used to resolve the problem of territorial development in Argentina.

The National Consensus for Decent Habitat reflects the positions of Habitar Argentina, the multi-sectoral collective to which CELS belongs.
