Urban Housing Practitioners Hub


The Urban Housing Practitioners Hub or UHPH is an open platform for the exchange, gathering and dissemination of practices, knowledge, and stakeholders working around housing and urban habitat in Latin America and the Caribbean. It combines the digital space with face-to-face interactions so that those working in the sector can connect with each other and access information and practical solutions in real time.

It was established in October 2016, during Habitat III, the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development, thanks to the funding and support of Cities Alliance and Habitat for Humanity. Its vision is to impact the quality and scale of regional housing practices and policies and contribute to the achievement and local implementation of the New Urban Agenda, the 2030 Agenda (Sustainable Development Goals), and the international frameworks for sustainable development, climate change mitigation, and disaster reduction. The UHPH was born of the collaboration of members and allies like the Caixa Econômica Federal of Brazil, the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development of Chile (Minvu), UN-Habitat, the Inter-American Development Bank (IADB) and regional and local associations such as the Federation of Latin American Cities (FLACMA) and the Inter-American Housing Union (UNIAPRAVI), and other networks and organizations such as TECHO, the Ibero-american Forum on Best Practices, the Mario Santo Domingo Foundation of Colombia, and the Housing and Habitat Researchers of the Americas Network (RIVHA).

In June 2017, the UHPH was ratified by the 17th General Assembly of the MINURVI, the intergovernmental coordination and cooperation entity of Latin America and the Caribbean in terms of sustainable development of human settlements. It was officially presented in the Conference of Cities in Santiago, Chile in 2017 in recognition of its importance as a regional knowledge platform.

We are a coalition of over 40 members from multiple sectors–national and local governments, private sector, academia, civil society, multilateral, cooperation and development agencies and networks–committed to promote an intra-regional community of housing and habitat practitioners that facilitates the dissemination of innovations and best practices, including the collaborative construction of solutions for inclusive, equitable, sustainable, resilient and prosperous cities.

Based on knowledge as catalyst for change, the UHPH offers several service modules, such as:

  • Forums
  • Contests
  • Members' network
  • LAVs
  • Housing intelligence resources
