Description

Title Housing: Indicators System
Link with the Sustainable
Development Agenda 2030 (SDG) SDG 11: Sustainable Cities and Communities.
Status quo / Issue to be
addressed
In Argentina, access to housing is a citizen right which
is enshrined in the Constitution (NC Art 14), in the City
of Buenos Aires the Constitution “recognises the right
to decent housing and suitable habitat.” One of the
main challenges when seeking comprehensive solutions
and making effective impact decisions is the lack of
statistics and complete information on the housing
issue.
General objective
Explore the available information, primary sources in
areas, academic publications, and build indicators of
periodic publication for the different axes of the access to housing issue. Generate and publish
open information related to access to housing, access
to rental housing, idle housing, urbanisation processes
in slums and human settlements, access to mortgage
loans and provision of social houses.
In this way, we expect to promote access to housing
and integration of families of Buenos Aires City
(CABA) and increase transparency in the management
of the provision of housing solutions to neighbours by
providing them with comprehensive information and
keeping a continuous update frequency.

Brief description of the initiative
Creation of a “housing observatory” published in a
web platform with open and georeferenced data
and periodic updates. We seek to make the
information on availability and access to housing
in CABA transparent and promote/ diffuse the
existing offer of solutions.
Describe the way in which this
commitment is relevant to strengthen
OGP values of transparency, access to
information, public accountability, civic
participation, and technology and
innovation for openness and
accountability.
The publication of information about different aspects of the access to housing issue will contribute
to the values of transparency, access to information, accountability and they will strengthen civil
society’s capacity to monitor and assess public policies. It will also strengthen civic participation in the
processes of elaboration of comprehensive impact
solutions. Milestones Ongoing or new
commitment Start date End date
Establish a diagnosis of available information,
bearing in mind the normalisation and unification
of criteria.
