Our study "Access to Land & Finance for Community-Led Housing" is online


This publication is a CoHabitat initiative led by World Habitat and urbaMonde.

This short publication reviews some of the winning projects of the CoHabitat Network' Community-led housing (CLH) Awards, by focusing on how they managed to secure land and accessed funding to plan and build, refurbish or improve, their living environment.

It is urbaMonde’s belief that, despite their diversity of local contexts and particularities, these practices can inspire other people who are trying to conceive or strengthen CLH projects, especially given that access to affordable finance and access to land tend to be some of the main obstacles for developing CLH all over the world.

Through the following case studies, you will learn about several different land and financial mechanisms used by projects in the United Kingdom, Colombia, Argentina, Spain and Senegal, thus exploring a variety of contexts while exposing their difficulties, hopes, opportunities and ultimately presenting the solutions found by those groups of people.
