The Global Platform for the Right to the City (GPR2C) held the first part of a 2-session Assembly, focusing on adequate housing, popular economy and the right to the city to face the COVID-19 crisis, on Friday April 17, 2020. This session of the Assembly was attended by 95 participants – from social movements and organizations, local governments’ organizations, networks and academia – from all regions of the world.   

The interventions brought to light a great variety of perspectives, challenges and proposals regarding the right to adequate housing for the homeless and tenants, the integral attention to the inhabitants of precarious settlements and the protection of workers in the popular economy (called informal, although it sustains more than half of the population in many places of the world).
