The Co-Habitat Network is a global initiative launched in 2014 by urbaMonde - a non-governmental organisation based in Switzerland and France - in collaboration with community-led housing allies from across the world.

Co-Habitat is a space for the partners and allies to expand community-led housing by:

  • Exchanging knowledge and experiences through peer-to-peer learning;
  • Having a unified voice, and connecting to broader housing-rights and right to the city campaigns to shape the global agenda;
  • Producing and collecting community-managed data and information to demonstrate the successes and potential of community-led housing.
