At ImpactNET we centralize KSNET’s dissemination activities. In order to do this, we make use of different channels such as conversations, debates or reflexions of experts from our network. We also publish academic papers and contributions to the public discourse derived from our projects. The main objective of all these activities is to build bridges between Academia and the rest of the society.

The second report of the Cities Series is out. In this edition of the collaboration with Esade EcPol we discuss supply policies to improve access to housing in Spain.

This second issue presents the difficulties of access to housing in Spain and the different types of housing supply policies that have been implemented. At the moment the policies of incentives and limitations to reduce the number of vacant homes are difficult to manage and price controls can introduce distortions, such as reducing supply, reducing quality, segmentation of areas and increasing prices. Instead, we explore less widespread alternatives, such as social rent, the promotion of the right of first refusal and withdrawal in some conditions, and the reservation of land and density bonuses.

We have launched our new policy brief Series “Cities” together with Esade EcPol. We started talking about how EU funds can help us to solve energy poverty

In the first issue, we analyze the energy poverty problem in Spain and describe how the NextGeneration Funds and the MFM offer a unique opportunity to tackle it. We propose solutions around three lines of action: (i) Effective transformation of the housing stock; (ii) Knowledge generation; and (iii) Capacity development
