Survey on Abandoned Houses of Refugees and Migrants from Venezuela, 2022
The main purpose of the regional survey on abandoned housing and housing at risk of abandonment in Venezuela was to identify the quality of tenure, current situation of the abandoned properties as well as the access to HLP (housing, land and property) rights in host countries with the aim of understanding the magnitude of the impact on their rights to adequate housing. It also aimed to identify most affected population groups.
The survey aimed to characterize the dwellings abandoned by this population along with the most frequent circumstances and typologies of this abandonment. The survey also sought to characterize the housing situation faced by this population in the host countries using differential approaches.
