Cuba and UN Habitat Produce Integral Study on Housing

Havana, October 8 (RHC)-- Salvador Gomila, an advisor to the Cuban National Housing Institute, has made it known that with the technical support of the United Nations Program on Human Settlement, also known as UN-HABITAT, Cuban experts will conduct an integral study on Cuban housing.

The results of this study, he said, will give the national government an overall picture of housing in Cuba and provide answers to some of the most pressing questions in that area.

The advisor said the study will cover all aspects of housing: technical, territorial and urban planning, infrastructure, financing, the production of building materials, technologies to be used and social participation.

The study will be concluded by the end of 2014.

Cuba is one of four Latin American nations involved in the investigation. The three others are El Salvador, Ecuador and México.
UN HABITAT is headquartered in Nairobi, Kenya. It was created in 1978 and it celebrates its World Day on the first Monday every October.
