The mission of the Commission is to advance a multi-stakeholder organizing model and strategic-partnership development; facilitate knowledge sharing and utilization; and promote accountability and collective advocacy. This mission lies on the broader objective of guaranteeing that grassroots women can access opportunities and enhance their abilities to securely claim, gain, and maintain land and housing. In so doing, grassroots women could empower themselves and enhance the development of their communities.
The vision of the Huairou Commission's Land and Housing Campaign is that women the world over are able to autonomously securely claim, gain and maintain land and housing as a means of empowerment and a foundation for sustainable community development.
The objectives of the Commission include knowledge building and sharing, increasing the voice and visibility of communities, and accountability and monitoring.
Informed by the priorities of grassroots women’s organizations, the members and partners of the Huairou Commission believe that it is in the best interest of local and global communities for grassroots women to take full leadership in sustainable development. In this context, the Commission targets all professionals and stakeholders working on human settlement issues and professionals working in the field of international development.
