Fourth title: Urban planning that combines adequate housing with quality, inclusive and sustainable neighbourhoods

We are committed to planning mixed, compact and polycentric cities where housing benefits from a balanced context and contributes to the social, economic and environmental sustainability of the urban fabric.

We, the local governments must promote the compactness of urban fabrics to combat urban sprawl.

We need urban planning practices that avoid the dependence on the private vehicle and return to the model of accessible, walkable and bikable cities that are provided with efficient public transport networks.

We must boost existing urban fabrics and promote mixed uses in all of our neighbourhoods.

We must promote fair housing and integrated neighbourhoods.

We should also provide alternatives to the expansion of new informal settlements by focusing on the causes that lead to them and not on their victims.
