WHO WE ARE
SueloUrbano.org is an open and collaborative platform of knowledge and information. It was launched in 2015 by Habitat for Humanity (HFH) and Slum Dwellers International (SDI), under the framework of the Action Plan of the Cluster of Urban Civil Society Organizations of UN-HABITAT’s Global Land Tools Network (GLTN), and the SOLID GROUND – HFH’s global advocacy campaign – in Latin America and the Caribbean.
As an open network, the Cluster focuses on generating opportunities for collaboration between public and private sectors, civil society and academia, to address the local challenges that require the implementation of land tools and policies to foster co-responsible land governance.
The Cluster’s action is guided by principles and international agreements, such as the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Sustainable Development Goals, the New Urban Agenda, the Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015-2030, the International Open Data Charter, among others.
