Programa ADELANTE: Cooperación Triangular
Programa ADELANTE: Cooperación Triangular

Red Calle tiene por objetivo mejorar las condiciones de vida de las personas en situación de calle, una de las expresiones históricamente más despreciadas de la pobreza extrema, contribuyendo principalmente a los ODS 1 y 10. En la búsqueda de sociedades más justas, prósperas e incluyentes, Red Calle posibilita consensos internacionales para el desarrollo de acciones colectivas que fortalezcan los sistemas de protección social en América Latina.

MAIN CONTRIBUTION, FROM THE PROJECT'S THEMATIC PERSPECTIVE

Goal 1.3

Implement nationally appropriate social protection systems and measures for all, including floors, and by 2030 achieve substantial coverage of the poor and the vulnerable

Justification:

The RED CALLE project contributes to Target 1.3 by improving the living conditions of street people (SP), one of the hardest cores of extreme poverty and exclusion. Red Calle contributes to deepening the in-depth discussion on sectoral policies and the need to strengthen social protection systems. If this dimension is not addressed, there is a risk that the bridge between assistance, social integration and the guarantee of citizenship rights will not be built. The right to decent work and the right to housing, health and education must be guaranteed for SP.

Indicator 1.3.1

Proportion of population covered by social protection floors/systems, by sex, distinguishing children, unemployed persons, older persons, persons with disabilities, pregnant women, newborns, work-injury victims and the poor and the vulnerable

Justification:

The national diagnostic reports and the inter pairs review that was carried out make it possible to identify the gaps in access, coverage and quality of social protection systems in the six countries with regard to street people. The project allows to increase the vulnerable population covered by social protection systems or minimum levels of protection.

Goal 3.8

Achieve universal health coverage, including financial risk protection, access to quality essential health-care services and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all

Justification:

The RED CALLE project contributes to Target 3.8 by increasing health coverage for street people (SP). According to the diagnostic reports, the health aspect has been a key driver of the imaginary linked to SP; the high rates of health problems among SP show a structural deficit in this regard. Discrimination against these populations constitutes a barrier to access to the universal health system. In the case of mental health, difficulties are even greater. In all countries it is necessary to make progress in specific programmes for the treatment of dual pathologies or addictions.

Indicator 3.8.1

Coverage of essential health services (defined as the average coverage of essential services based on tracer interventions that include reproductive, maternal, newborn and child health, infectious diseases, non-communicable diseases and service capacity and access, among the general and the most disadvantaged population)

Justification:

The project contributes to this indicator by proposing regional guidelines on minimum standards for the provision of services, including health services, aimed at the population in street situations while ensuring access to and quality health care in general, and mental health services in particular.

CONTRIBUTION FROM A PARTICULAR PROJECT COMPONENT, COMPLEMENTARY TO THE MAIN TOPIC

Goal 2.1

By 2030, end hunger and ensure access by all people, in particular the poor and people in vulnerable situations, including infants, to safe, nutritious and sufficient food all year round

Justification:

The RED CALLE project contributes to Target 2.1 by guaranteeing food, as a fundamental human right, in the various services of the network of care for street people (SP) in the six participating countries. This guarantee includes both direct provision and implementation of actions to ensure that SP have access to this right by their own means.

Indicator 2.1.1

Prevalence of undernourishment

Justification:

The proposal of regional guidelines and minimum standards for the provision of services for street people (SP) that ensure access to food will allow to reverse the current levels of undernourishment in this population.

Goal 11.1

By 2030, ensure access for all to adequate, safe and affordable housing and basic services and upgrade slums

Justification:

The RED CALLE project contributes to Target 11.1 by integrating the Ministries of Housing in addressing the issue of street people (SP) in all the intervention countries, which also face various forms and variants of severe residential exclusion in their cities. Homelessness is one of the most obvious representations of poverty, as well as one of the least discussed and visible issues of public policies aimed at tackling SP. Furthermore, homelessness is directly related to deteriorating health and it reduces life expectancy.

Indicator 11.1.1

Proportion of urban population living in slums, informal settlements or inadequate housing

Justification:

The project contributes to this indicator by giving visibility to this issue in the different countries that make up the network as well as in the region. The right to adequate housing is a fundamental right, which is why States must guarantee access to decent living spaces where people in street situations (SP) can develop their potential, while also guaranteeing access to different basic services.

CONTRIBUTION FROM CROSSCUTTING TOPICS

Goal 10.2

By 2030, empower and promote the social, economic and political inclusion of all, irrespective of age, sex, disability, race, ethnicity, origin, religion or economic or other status

Justification:

The RED CALLE project contributes to Target 10.2 by strengthening national public policies for the care of street people (SP) from a structural approach that does not place solely individual attributions and responsibilities of people over their situation. It also recognizes the need to change the dynamics of production and consumption of the discarded society, where those who are considered as non-productive persons, i.e. the most vulnerable persons and those facing the greatest difficulties, are excluded and expelled. Reducing inequality and social fragmentation based on the right to social protection and decent work are intrinsic challenges to tackling poverty eradication and the street situation.

Indicator 10.2.1

Proportion of people living below 50 per cent of median income, by age, sex and persons with disabilities

Justification:

The project contributes to this indicator by strengthening the prioritization, definition and implementation of comprehensive policies that address, from a rights-based approach, the multiple dimensions that street people (SP) have to face, promoting the participation of the population in this situation and the exchange with the community in general, seeking the restoration of violated rights as well as greater social integration.
