Urbanization sets further pressure on the building industry. The migration from rural areas to cities continues to grow and in Latin America 90% of the population is estimated to live in cities by 2050. In Peru more than a quarter of the total population lives in the capital Lima. Despite Peru’s unprecedented economic growth the last years many people lack adequate housing.In order to solve the housing deficit and to provide access to housing the State and the private sector have to work together. Fondo Mivivenda (FMV) is an organisation addressing this issue. FMV works as a second-tier bank and have reached great success with the programme Crédito MiVivienda, providing mortgage loans to low-incomers. FMV are today developing a financial bonus programme in order to promote green social housing. To create sustainable houses, cities and communities it is essential with a comprehensive approach. Recently the impact our buildings have on the environment is realized but often the social sustainability is largely neglected while priority is given to economic and environmental sustainability in the context of planning and housing. With Fondo MiVivienda’s Green Bonus Programme as starting point, the research examines the importance of including social sustainability in green social housing. The outcomes of this research are presented in a design proposal exemplifying how social sustainability can be achieved in low-cost housing projects situated in Lima. With means of flexible apartments, smart greenery and mixed-functions we can create long-term sustainable livelihoods with high level of local participation.
