Living well with shrinkage: challenges and opportunities for housing in shrinking regions


FEANTSA and the Fondation Abbé Pierre publish together a joint report on urban shrinkage: "Living well with shrinkage – Challenges and opportunities for housing in shrinking regions". Some European regions are experiencing significant population loss due to complex downward spirals affecting public funding, socio-economic variables and wastelands. Housing and housing markets are also impacted by this phenomenon. High rates of vacant property, as well dilapidated, inadequate, and unfit housing are charactering shrinking regions. In this scenario full of challenges, opportunities for the renewal of public policies managing urban shrinkage also exist. The report presents some of these good practices and cross-cutting approaches that consider the needs and skills of residents, within the framework of the circular economy.
