FOVISEE Projects as Policy Models

Transfers are one of FOVISEE’s projects main objectives. Once FOVISEE’s projects have been completed and evaluated, team members disseminate the project results, raise awareness, and share our experiences and expertise with government officials as well as private sector and civil society institutions working on social housing. FOVISEE projects only make sense if they are eventually implemented on a large scale.

For example, FOVISEE based its energy efficient affordable housing models on the average size and cost of units built under the “Federal Housing Plan” (approximately 50 sq. meters or 538 sq. ft. and a total cost of US$ 30,000). In order to ensure minimal additional costs and guarantee the extension of sustainability housing criteria to millions of people, FOVISEE chose to work with simple and low-cost energy efficiency technologies. Sophisticated and costly technologies would surely be rejected by state housing plans.

All of FOVISEE’s projects are designed and managed aiming at generating policy models which can be transferred to local, national and regional governments and other public policies institutions.

Within the three working areas, our projects are:



Due to FOVISEE’s wealth of experience working with energy efficiency in Argentina, the foundation has been asked to be involved in a variety of projects dealing with housing and energy. On the one hand, FOVISEE is working with Habitat for Humanity in Buenos Aires to guide the construction of seven energy efficient apartment buildings destined to low-income families in La Boca, Buenos Aires.
