Gender and habitat, an area for exploration and investment

This document reflects the current state of the thinking carried out by the Fondation Abbé Pierre and its partners on the theme of gender & habitat.
The first part of this document introduces the gender & habitat theme, then addresses equitable access to the city, and habitat care. Far from being exhaustive, this part seeks to set the context and provide avenues and tools for reflection. To complete these somewhat theoretical contributions, in the second part of the dossier, experiences of players in the housing sector are presented in the form of brief case studies. Six of them provide a quick overview of how gender is taken into account in international projects supported by the FAP, and two others, led by organisations from the MesoAmeri-Kaab network in the housing sector in the Mesoamerican region, allow for further discussion and exchange on this subject.
