Favela CLT logo

Brazil's Favela Community Land Trust project (Termo Territorial Coletivo), developed by Catalytic Communities in partnership with several public agencies, private institutions, universities, and community leaders, is inspired by the CLT model, in existence for decades and present in several countries around the world.  Their mission is to "execute and ensure the right to adequate housing and community empowerment through the introduction of the Community Land Trust in Brazil, focusing on conducting pilots in informal settlements and enacting national legislation on the subject."
