INVITATION

Local struggles for housing rights
in the context of climate change, urbanization
and environmental degradation:
How do we create “resilient” communities
in the face of multiple crises, including COVID-19?

cross the world, the right to adequate housing is under pressure
from climate change, urbanization and environmental degradation. Informal settlement dwellers and people living in poverty
are particularly vulnerable to the increasing impacts of the climate crisis.
Often poor communities are forced to settle on precarious land on the
banks of rivers or hillsides, or land that is subject to flooding. This increases their vulnerability to climate-induced disasters such as mudslides, flooding, extreme storms, heat waves and droughts.

A

When their homes are destroyed in disasters, those without security of
tenure are left homeless. Further, climate change and disaster risk reduction are increasingly being used as excuses for evictions of informal settlements to
make way for modernization and development projects, without adequate resettlement programs for displaced persons.
This event will hear from the UN Special Rapporteur on the right to adequate housing, UN
agencies and civil society. It will illuminate ground-level experiences from Peru and the
Philippines and highlight how community-led initiatives can protect communities and build
their resilience to both the climate crisis and the COVID-19 pandemic.
We will also launch the report “Local struggles for housing rights in the context of climate
change, urbanization and environmental degradation”, published by GI-ESCR and MISEREOR
in cooperation with partner organizations:
