The Wider Image: In Puerto Rico, a housing crisis U.S. storm aid won't solve
Among the countless Puerto Rico neighbourhoods battered by Hurricane Maria is one named after another storm: Villa Hugo. The illegal shantytown emerged on a public wetland after 1989's Hurricane Hugo left thousands homeless. About 6,000 squatters landed here, near the El Yunque National Forest, and built makeshift homes on 40 acres that span a low-lying valley and its adjacent mountainside. Wood and concrete dwellings, their facades scrawled with invented addresses, sit on cinder blocks. After Maria, many are missing roofs; some have collapsed altogether. Villa Hugo reflects a much larger crisis in this impoverished U.S. territory, where so-called "informal" homes are estimated to house about half the population of 3.4 million. Some residents built on land they never owned. Others illegally subdivided properties, often so family members could build on their lots. Most have no title to their homes, which are constructed without permits and usually not up to building codes. Many have plumbing and power, though not always through official means.

A multi-coloured gay pride flag hangs in a corner of a bare room in an abandoned Sao Paulo art deco building that was once the headquarters of Brazil's social security agency. The room is home to several members of Brazil's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community seeking refuge from discrimination and hate crimes against LGBT people. They were invited to join some 300 squatters who have been living in the building for several months in an occupation organised by Front in the Fight for Housing, an activist group promoting rights of some 400,000 people without decent housing in Sao Paulo. Brazil has one of the world's highest rates of LGBT hate crimes, despite a reputation for sexual tolerance. The country recognised same-sex marriage in 2013 and hosts some of the world's largest gay pride festivals. REUTERS/Nacho Doce SEARCH "LGBT BRAZIL" FOR THIS STORY.

The Wider Image: Residents resist demolition
You would never guess from inside Beverley Robinson's tidy flat, with its potted plants, family photos and panoramic view of London, that her building is awaiting demolition. But the corridor outside is eerily quiet and the children's playground downstairs lies empty and overgrown. Most neighbours have left and their old flats are shuttered up to deter squatters. The building is cut off from the street by a fence topped with sharp metal blades and manned by security guards. This is one of the flashpoints in London's housing crisis. Unaffordable rents and long waiting lists for social housing have made it harder and harder for people on low incomes to find homes in London, where average property prices have risen by 90 percent over the past 10 years, far outstripping income growth. Robinson and a few others are resisting a 1.5-billion-pound ($1.9-billion), two-decade scheme to flatten the dilapidated Aylesbury Estate, one of Britain's largest social housing projects, and build thousands of new homes in its place.REUTERS/Dylan Martinez SEARCH "AYLESBURY" FOR THIS STORY.
