Habitat International Coalition (HIC)

The Habitat International Coalition (HIC) is the global network for rights related to habitat. Through solidarity, networking and support for social movements and organizations, HIC struggles for social justice, gender equality, and environmental sustainability, and works in the defense, promotion and realization of human rights related to housing and land in both rural and urban areas.

The HIC strategic approach corresponds to three lines of intervention:

  • Strengthen networks between members, among them and with other networks and organizations, to promote the HIC mission through democratic practices and transparent management and in the spirit of gender equality and generational renewal.
  • Accompany and support community processes in building alternatives towards a good living with dignity for all people by promoting gender equality and the social production of habitat, defending the right to a healthy environment, and fighting against violations of the rights to housing, land, and the city.
  • Influence public policies related to housing and habitat at the local, national and global levels based on human rights, gender equality and environmental sustainability.
