Regional exchanges on habitat and climate change

By Maria Silvia Emanuelli | Coordinator

Promotion of regional exchanges on habitat and its connection with the climate change agenda.

In the past few months, there has been an internal discussion among organizations and social actors on the connection between the climate crisis and habitat and housing, and the few opportunities that the experiences and responses, already tested in the territories, have in international debates on climate. In view of this absence, there is a need to highlight this matter and to continue facilitating spaces for dialogue in the region, as the climate crisis has serious impacts on the enjoyment of the right to adequate housing in rural and urban areas, even leading to climate displacement. Likewise, housing itself contributes to climate change through the construction sector and the energy consumption of buildings, making it urgent to identify and encourage alternative proposals that are sustainable and environmentally friendly. 
With this in mind, during these months we have been working on the organization of the hybrid forum “Habitat crisis and climate change: from local responses to the international debate”, to be held on the 15 and 16 of November of this year. This forum will have the participation of 20 different experiences of Social Production of Habitat (SPH), neighborhood improvement, food and energy sovereignty, among others, from countries such as Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Mexico and Peru. The experiences will share their strategies, achievements and obstacles in their processes. After these presentations, we will have the opportunity to listen to the interventions of five representatives of international networks and other actors highly involved in climate debates in order to build a common strategy that will allow us to promote future analysis, reflections and actions to advance in the democratization of decisions and of climate funds from the perspective of human rights.

Promoción de diálogos regionales en materia de hábitat y su relación con la agenda del cambio climático.

En los últimos meses se ha mantenido una reflexión interna entre organizaciones y actores sociales sobre la relación que mantiene la crisis climática con el hábitat y la vivienda, y los pocos espacios que las experiencias y las respuestas a los problemas ensayadas desde los territorios logran tener en los debates internacionales sobre el clima. Ante esta ausencia se ha planteado la necesidad de visibilizar el tema y continuar generando espacios de diálogo en la región, ya que la crisis climática está teniendo graves repercusiones en el disfrute del derecho a la vivienda en zonas rurales y urbanas y provoca desplazamiento climático. De igual forma, la propia vivienda contribuye al cambio climático a través del sector de la construcción y del consumo energético de los edificios, por lo que se hace imperante identificar y promover propuestas alternativas sostenibles y amigables con el medio ambiente. Considerado lo anterior en estos meses hemos trabajado en la organización del “Foro híbrido: La crisis del hábitat y el cambio climático: de las respuestas locales al debate internacional”, que se llevará a cabo los días 15 y 16 de noviembre del presente año, y en el cual participarán 20 diferentes experiencias de producción social del hábitat, mejoramiento barrial, construcción de soberanìa alimentaria y energética, entre otras, de Argentina, Bolivia, Brasil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, México y Perú que compartirán sus estrategias, logros y obstáculos. Posterior a estas presentaciones, tendremos la oportunidad de escuchar las presentaciones de cinco representantes de redes e instancias internacionales muy involucradas en los debates sobre el clima con el fin de construir una estrategia compartida que permitirá impulsar futuros análisis, reflexiones y acciones para avanzar en la democratización de las decisiones y los fondos climáticos desde la óptica de los derechos humanos.
