#housing2030 - Effective policies for affordable housing in the UNECE region. At least 100 million low and middle-income people in the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) region are housing cost overburdened; they spend more than 40 per cent of their disposable income on housing. Housing affordability is an important element of the right to adequate housing but is often a challenge for groups of the population facing vulnerabilities.
Housing is so much more than real estate. Housing can be an oasis, refuge and a stepping stone in life. Every step along the way can be made more safe and secure or, unfortunately, more risky and precarious.
