The construction of sustainable and resilient public housing is a key strategy in addressing the challenges of climate change mitigation and adaptation as well as insufficient housing supplies in Latin America and the Caribbean. Incorporating sustainable building technologies and practices in housing design and construction can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and minimize environmental impact (United Nations Environment Programme). Homes can be strategically designed and located to withstand and adapt to the impacts of climate change, such as flooding and extreme weather events (Inter-American Development Bank). Incorporating green spaces and sustainable landscaping techniques not only improves living standards for residents; it also helps mitigate urban heat island effects and reinforces the climate resilience of local communities (United Nations Environment Programme). In a context where insufficient housing supplies are a persistent challenge, the construction of sustainable public housing becomes an opportunity to address both housing needs and climate change mitigation and adaptation in the region (Inter-American Development Bank).
