Baltic Union of Co-operative Housing Associations

Baltic Union of Co-operative Housing Associations was founded on Ocober 5 in 1999 in Tallinn. The formation of the union grew out from the need for a joint and strong representation of the housing co-operatives and associations in three small Baltic states. The founders of the union were representatives of co-operative housing organisations in Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia.

Why was BUCHA founded:

  • Three Baltic states have similar economical and political history
  • Three Baltic states have passed the process of privatisation at the beginning of 1990-s
  • Majority of the population in all three Baltic states lives in multi-apartment buildings
  • Housing stock in the whole Baltic region has been built under the circumstances of a very low building quality and has been without professional maintenance during last 50 years
  • Housing stock in all Baltic states needs a large-scale comprehensive energy efficient renovation

The goals of BUCHA:

  • Represent co-operative housing movement of Baltic states in Europe and worldwide
  • Promote networking and information exchange of co-operative housing sector in the Baltic states
