Dwellings without adequate heating

In 2018, 5.3% of the population in Belgium declare that they could not heat their dwelling adequately. To achieve the sustainable development goal by 2030, this figure must be reduced to zero percent. This objective will not be reached by continuing the trend since 2008. The proportion of the population that cannot heat their dwelling adequately is therefore developing unfavourably.
