“The world is experiencing a global housing crisis:
“About 1.6 billion people live in substandard housing and 100 million are homeless.
“Each week, more than 1 million people are born in, or move to, cities in the developing world.
“One billion people (32 percent of the global urban population) live in urban slums.
“If no serious action were taken, the number of slum dwellers worldwide would increase over the next 30 years to nearly 2 billion.
“In the United States alone, 95 million people have housing problems, including payments too large a percentage of their income, overcrowding, poor quality shelter and homelessness.”
