Housing is a basic need and has one of the biggest impacts on people’s wellbeing and quality of life. Home ownership is an aspiration for many  and the single biggest investment that most will make.

Why is affordable housing important

Housing is a fundamental component of quality of life. Without appropriate shelter, people cannot meet their basic needs and participate adequately in society.
Housing issues can have flow-on effects for health, education and community wellbeing. The changing demand for housing and supply constraints can put pressure on an urban area’s natural and social environment and affect a city’s ability to provide suitable infrastructure and services.

What is the Human Right to Adequate Housing?

Every woman, man, youth and child has the human right to a secure place to live, which is fundamental to living in dignity, to physical and mental health, and to overall quality of life. The human right to housing is explicitly set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, and other widely adhered to international human rights treaties and Declarations. Despite widespread recognition of the human right to adequate housing, the UN Centre for Human Settlements estimates that over 1 billion people worldwide live in inadequate housing, and 100 million are homeless.
