Highlights of our Urban October 2021's campaign

As in 2020, the CoHabitat Network participated in Urban October, the annual initiative of the UN-Habitat agency, by carrying out an online campaign.

This campaign aimed to spread the word about community-led housing (CLH) initiatives, with a focus on the access to land and financing. The Network published a case-review study, and organised a webinar and a peer-to-peer exchange.

This exchange replaced the regional Community-Led Housing awards that the Network organised pre-Covid during in-person regional meetings. This year, we decided to invite CoHabitat partners to promote inspiring community-led housing projects and give them the opportunity to talk about what they do and exchange their practices.
