Entries to the Awards are encouraged from housing projects and programmes that:

  • demonstrate practical, innovative and sustainable solutions to current housing challenges;
  • can be transferred or adapted in other countries across the world;
  • are already being implemented or are completed i.e. not at design stage or in the very early stages of development; and
  • view the term habitat from a broad perspective and bring a range of other benefits. We particularly encourage entries from projects and programmes that are addressing the climate emergency. Other benefits of interest to us include: income generation; social inclusion; community and individual empowerment; health benefits; capacity building and or education.

All entries are subject to a thorough assessment process and around 10 projects are evaluated by an independent advisory group of housing experts.

Evaluation visits are made to four projects before recommendations are presented to a panel of external judges, including the Executive Director of the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT).

Entries can be submitted now in English, Spanish or French until 23:59 UTC Monday 14 March 2022.

Promotional flyers for the 2022 World Habitat Awards entries are available here in Arabic, Chinese (Simplified), English, French, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish.


Organised in partnership with UN-Habitat
