Third title: More tools to co-produce public-private community-driven alternative housing

We are committed to boosting mixed residential solutions, which are neither solely government-driven nor purely based on commercial gain.

We, the local governments need to be able to count on the strength and talent from our cities’ productive and social fabric to co-produce mixed solutions, instead of exclusively focusing on public or business-led schemes.

We must prioritize subsidies and tax exemptions for the creation of affordable housing.

In addition, we aim to explore, amongst others, various options adapted to each city’s situation such as the cooperative or the community land trust housing models and create public-private operators to invest capital in the creation and preservation of affordable rental housing.

Likewise, we must collaborate with non-governmental organisations and foster the participation, self-management and empowerment of residents, supporting good practices such as collaborative design or assisted self-construction.
