World Habitat Day 2018

On World Habitat Day, Habitat for Humanity joins the United Nations and organisations around
the world in raising awareness and in educating and mobilising individuals and communities to
take action on the current global housing crisis.

During World Habitat Day, Habitat draws attention to the important role decent housing plays in
eliminating barriers to a better, healthier, more financially stable life.

Seventy-five percent of people lack proper documentation for the land on which they live. Without
land, there can be no housing, and housing is the key to stability and opportunity. For this reason, over 150 governments agreed to the New Urban Agenda as a global framework highlighting the
need for urban policies to emphasize housing, focus on secure tenure and prioritize community-led
development, and we must ensure governments are held accountable to their commitments.
