The International Forum “The Zero eviction campaign, its results and prospects” outside of the institutional urban area. While in 1950 two thirds of the world’s population lived in the country, presently more than 3 billion persons, that is half of the world’s population, live in cities. Of these, over one billion are homeless or ill housed with a prospected worsening of the habitat conditions for another 700 million people within the year 2030, clamorously contradicting the 11th Target of the Millennium Development Goals, which proposes to improve these conditions for 100 million persons within the year 2020.
