Affordable housing: profiles of five metropolitan cities

Global urban growth is a fact. Cities have expanded beyond their own administrative borders, resulting in metropolitan territories with large physical dimensions. The metropolises of the world are engines of growth, the nodes in major streams of people, goods, wealth, knowledge, creativity and innovation. [...] On the other hand, because they are diverse and complex, the same metropolises also tend to be fragmented, generating profound inequalities within their own territories. Metropolitan opportunities and inequalities arise in almost every aspect of the lives of urban dwellers, starting with one of the most fundamental universal human rights: the right to adequate housing and shelter.

The report portrays the efforts of the city authorities of Berlin, Buenos Aires, Kuala Lumpur, Montréal and Singapore in order to ensure affordable housing for all citizens.
