Having an appropriate habitat that includes decent housing and living spaces that promote the inclusive development of communities in the countries of the region, greater well-be-ing and poverty reduction, is a fundamental right for all people, but also a challenge due to the qualitative and quantitative housing deficit.

It is estimated that Central America has approximately 13 million homes and a housing deficit of 53%; in other words, 5.3 out of every 10 homes have a lack of infrastructure, in addition to the fact that it is the second fastest urbanizing region in the world, second only to Africa.

For this reason, the Central American Bank for Economic Integration (CABEI) supports the efforts of both governments and the private sector to promote projects that facilitate access to decent housing as an effective means to promote human development in line with its Institutional Strategy and based on the Central American Housing and Human Settlements Strategy (ECVAH) of the Central American Council for Housing and Human Settlements (CCVAH), as well as the strategic guidelines of UN Habitat for 2030.
