present report of the Special Rapporteur on adequate housing as a component of
the right to an adequate standard of living, and on the right to
non-discrimination in this context, is submitted pursuant to Human Rights Council
resolutions 15/8and 25/17. Because the Special Rapporteur commenced her mandate
only on 2 June 2014, the report is preliminary in nature, outlining some of the
central opportunities and priorities about which she wishes to consult with
States, civil society and other relevant stakeholders as she continues to
prepare her plan of work.
report also reflects on the valuable work undertaken by the two previous
mandate holders and surveys key advances made in the first 14 years of the
mandate. It then offers preliminary thoughts about the current status of the
right to adequate housing and highlights priority areas in which the Special
Rapporteur hopes that further advances can be made.
