  • In general, projects that promote social development for the most vulnerable populations are highly valued. More specifically, it is sought to identify, evaluate and select projects and initiatives that help poor urban families have access to a better, and more secure housing situation, that look to provide communities with an adequate urban setting and that attend to the problems that arise out of natural disasters.
