Putting housing at the center of urban strategy Dr. Joan Clos

As the world grapples with what some have deemed “the age of urbanization,” affordable* housing has become a great concern. Dr. Joan Clos, executive director of UN-Habitat recommends that housing should be a big part and at the center of the urban planning and design conversation. He means by that, that housing should come back to the center of the urban strategy: urban planning, design, and urban strategy. Published on Mar 19, 2015

"Affordability, as defined by the authors of a recent MGI report on affordable housing,1 is the threshold of financial burden that an individual household will bear—about 30 percent to 40 percent of income."
