Asia-Pacific Housing Forum 6

The Asia-Pacific Housing Forum is a sector platform that gathers under one roof major stakeholders engaged in seeking solutions to poverty housing issues and promote affordable housing as a driver of economic growth.

It brings together policy-makers, academics, urban planners, architects, housing sector developers, non-governmental organizations, donor agencies, researchers, advocates, international organizations and others.

Since its inception in 2007, the Housing Forum has brought together more than 3,400 people from over 52 countries.

“The infrastructure in our major cities cannot cope with current populations, never mind the predicted growth that continued urbanization will drive. People who live in decent homes are better workers and make the city a thriving place…the challenge is to make life more livable for people who are drawn to cities to find jobs and create that growth. Adequate housing and secure tenure are the basis for living. There are various ways to address long-term affordability of housing, but it has to start with the allocation of land.”
