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.
Further information about this award-winning
project is also available from the World Habitat
