Some Interesting Practices

  • KLONG BANG BUA COMMUNITY : This project was launched in 2003 by the CODI (Community Organization Development Institute) in the Bang Mankong program (in Bangkok), aims to develop solutions to local problems and Housing, placing communities poor neighborhoods in the center of the process. CODI unless absolutely necessary, shoot informal communities to manage their own negotiations. This power enabled them to negotiate a long-term lease (30 years) for a real land security on public land occupied. Savings groups and cooperatives are formed by the inhabitants. Management by “small groups” seems one of the keys to success. Swarming of the project is via a “people to people” strategy, poor communities relate to each other, bypassing the CODI. This project received several awards. The Social Housing Production experience is described in the file produced by Urbamonde: http://urbamonde.org/site/sites/urbamonde.org/files/Brochure%20PSH%2002_WEB.pdf – For more information, please contact CODI – or the Asian Coalition for Housing Rights Network
