The plan is focused on the resettlement of families that are located in frequent flood risk areas, in polluted zones and do not have the necessary resources to find housing alternatives or secure land on their own.
Resettlement houses are located in urban areas with access to transportation, sanitation, energy and education services. The families that are resettled are engaged in a participatory process in order to jointly develop the most viable housing options.
How it works
The former flood-risk residential lands are converted into public spaces, usually parks, that can be flooded from time to time without harm and prevent these areas from being occupied again by informal settlements.
