Aligned to the New Urban Agenda, our vision for the future is one where everyone has access to decent, affordable shelter and lives in inclusive, thriving communities. While we empower our partner communities in their development journey, we’re also one of the 27 countries championing Solid Ground, Habitat for Humanity’s first global advocacy campaign.

One of the campaign’s priorities is to promote pro-poor informal settlement upgrading, a practice in which the community is an active and equitable partner in the upgrading process. We firmly believe that people come first, and that everyone has a right to decent shelter. As such, we stand on Solid Ground and use our voices to advocate for poor, marginalised communities at local, national, and global forums.
