WOMEN + HABITAT NETWORK

The Latin American Women and Habitat Network is formed by NGOs, women’s organizations, and women’s rights activists dedicated to advocating for greater gender equality in the arena of habitat, local territories and the city. It is a coalition with over 30 years of experience in conducting research projects, providing technical consulting, offering training and educational services, and coordinating social programs and projects.
The Latin American Women and Habitat Network’s main objectives include:
• Produce and disseminate knowledge, rooted in a gender-based perspective, on issues related to access to land and housing, urban services, increased safety in cities, and local development and planning
• Make gender equality a priority in the design and implementation of public policies and programs through initiatives to build awareness and strengthen the capabilities of governmental entities, educational institutions and women’s organizations
• Improve women’s quality of life through programs and projects developed via dialogue and collaboration with local governments and community organizations
The Latin American Women and Habitat Network’s relevant lines of action include:
• Coexistence and safety in the city: violence against women in private and public spaces
• Housing and urban development: access to land and the right to housing
• Everyday life and urban infrastructure: the use of time and urban services
•  Climate change and risk management: natural disasters and the resilience of communities
