Presentation of the First Global Affordable Housing Atlas

The presentation of the first great dynamic atlas of housing will take place next Wednesday, October 26, at the Colegio Oficial de Arquitectos de Madrid (COAM), at 4.30 pm (CEST).

It will be streamed live at

The 300.000 km/s agency, who developed this tool, will do a demonstration to show how it works and its potential.

The Affordable Housing Atlas aims to look into the issue of housing access on a global scale. The approach to the issue is supported by data provided by multiple sources, making it possible to describe the planet on a global scale using the criteria of the Affordable Housing Activation (AHA) scientific committee, which has defined different barriers contributing to housing inaccessibility.

It uses data from multiples sources that, until now, were only accessible through different websites. By translating this data in a uniform way in terms of qualities and standards, the tool provides a vast amount of information on a single platform in a coordinated way. Sources include the World Bank, the World Health Organization, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, the United Nations, the International Monetary Fund and Google, among others.

The tool facilitates access to all this data to support a deeper understanding of the issue of housing access on a global scale, allowing users to compare countries and cities, and to inform public policies to help improve access to affordable housing.

The event will host a dialogue between the General Director of Housing and Land, Javier Martín; the president of the Spanish Association of Public Housing and Land Managers (AVS), María Montes; the president of the Association of Promoters and Builders of Spain (ACPCEspaña), Juan Antonio Gómez-Pintado; the president of OnCities2030, Ana Moreno, and the director of the 2030 Observatory of the CSCAE, Ángela Baldellou.

The Spanish Secretary-General of Urban Agenda and Housing, David Lucas, will open the event, and the president of the CSCAE, Marta Vall-llossera, will close it.
