Kisumu City Hosts International Conference on Adequate and Affordable Housing

Venue:          Grand Royal Swiss Hotel

Date:             March 19th-21st 2019

A decent shelter is fundamental to physical and psychological well-being and the social stability of communities. It has central importance to the quality of life and human dignity with considerable economic, social, cultural significance.

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948 recognizes the right to adequate housing as an important component of the right to an adequate standard of living.

“The human right to adequate housing is the right of every woman, man, youth and child to gain and sustain a safe and secure home and community in which to live in peace and dignity”.

Yet the inexorable urbanization of the developing world is creating a massive shortage of adequate and affordable housing, especially for low-income families. Lack of housing options for the growing urban population continues to drive ever-increasing numbers into the informal shelter.

This greater need informed Grassroots Trust for Community Organizations in Kenya (GRACTO-K) initiative to organize an international housing conference in Kisumu.

The initiative brings together key players including the County Government of Kisumu, City council of Kisumu,  Civil Societies and international development partners working in housing and urban development.

The overall goal of the conference is to provide a platform for organizations dealing with housing and urban development in Kisumu and other cities of Kenya to improve engagement with National and County housing on policies focusing on the lowest income groups and thus contribute to the progressive realization of the right to adequate housing.

Key Conference Objectives

  1. Identify obstacles/or factors hindering the realization of affordable housing.
  2. Share experiences and challenges and discuss the sector trends forging joint interventions.
  3. Offer a medium for networking and cooperation across sectors in matters related to the right to adequate and affordable housing.
