UNANIMA Issues Statement for World Homelessness Day
Ahead of the World Homelessness Day on October 10, UNANIMA International issued a statement today on recommendations for ending homelessness across the globe.
Citing their recent research publication, UNANIMA International draws attention to signs of invisible homeless which include, but are not limited to, unsafe or forced living conditions, domestic violence, displacement due to man-made and climate change disaster, human trafficking, housing/rental discrimination, and being “doubled-up.” Access to adequate quality and affordable housing is a human right and a necessary gateway to social and physical safety and dignity.
Among their recommendations UNANIMA reiterates the former UN Special Rapporteur on Adequate Housing Leilani Farha’s suggestion for moratoriums on evictions, the inclusion of homeless and informal settlement residents in census results, and the assertion that all homeless services globally must adopt holistic, trauma-informed care.
