SIHISB: Information System for Social Housing in São Bernardo do Campo
This publication presents the development process of the Information System for Social Housing in São Bernardo do Campo (SIHISB), part of a comprehensive housing policy that the city has been implementing since 2009.
SIHISB is an online information system for social housing that is customised to São Bernardo do Campo’s specific needs and context. It is public, online, and able to effectively organise and systematise data on informal settlements to help city authorities plan their interventions more effectively.
The system is based on HABISP, a comprehensive online information and mapping system developed as part of the Cities Alliance’s long-term partnership with the city of São Paulo. São Bernardo do Campo collaborated with São Paulo to adapt HABISP to its needs. SIHISB was operationalized in 2012.
