This report presents the outcomes of our 2013 peer exchange to Uruguay to learn more about the World Habitat Award winning project, ‘South-South Cooperation: international transfer of the FUCVAM model of mutual aid housing cooperatives’ and to look at how their approach has successfully transferred to other countries.
This report showcases the work of the programme, ‘South-South Cooperation: international transfer of the FUCVAM model of mutual aid housing cooperatives’ in Uruguay. It introduces the FUCVAM approach and also includes information about the BSHF-funded peer exchange which took place in Montevideo, Uruguay in September 2013.
The impact of the project has been significant, directly and indirectly enabling hundreds of thousands of people across Latin America to have access to decent housing as well as other opportunities for income generation and social development.
