5th International Urban Development And Social Inclusion Contest


The Urban Development and Social Inclusion Contest seeks to reward Latin American cities that propose comprehensive improvement of the habitat in communities, especially improvements to the quality of life of their citizens, and the integration of spontaneous settlements into the city through the conception and design of innovative, relevant, justifiable and feasible proposals.

This contest is an initiative of CAF’s Cities with a Future program, whose objective is to support Latin American authorities in creating more inclusive, connected, spatially, economically and socially integrated cities, with universal access to basic services, training opportunities and environmental responsibility.
