This publication is the result of collaboration between the Strategic Planning Area of the AMB and the Metropolitan Housing Observatory of Barcelona. It  explains the impact made by access to housing on the living conditions of the population in the metropolitan sphere. The volume makes a diagnosis of the current situation in relation to access to housing in the Barcelona metropolitan area, analyses the evolution of the policies applied and establishes the bases for improving metropolitan governability in association with housing policies. Lastly, it defines the set of strategic lines that should contribute to improving housing policy in the metropolitan sphere, giving examples from the most relevant experiences elsewhere in Europe.
