WWB and FOVISEE together with the Municipality of Bariloche and a group of partners develop the weatherization program called “Sustentabilizar Hogares”.
The first step of the program, given in 2016, was building the ecosystem in Bariloche (Patagonia, Argentina) for a weatherization pilot project. Among the stakeholders, the project counted with Citi Foundation, Fundación Avina, Social Development National Ministry, Community Housing Partners (CHP) and CAF, among others.
