UNITED NATIONS, Mar 4 (APP): Homelessness is found in every country in the world and is spreading with impunity, a U.N. human rights expert warned Friday, and called governments to recognize homelessness as a human rights crisis and commit to its eradication by 2030, in line with the new UN Sustainable Development Goals. Presenting her report to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva, the UN Special Rapporteur on the right to housing, Leilani Farha said that homelessness is found throughout the world, in all countries regardless of the level of development of their economic and governance systems.
