Asia-Pacific Housing Forum 6
The Asia-Pacific Housing Forum is a platform that gathers and engages different sectors and stakeholders in seeking solutions to poverty housing issues, and to promote affordable housing as a driver of economic growth.
It brings together policy-makers, academics, urban planners, architects, housing sector developers, non-government organizations, donor agencies, researchers, advocates, and international organizations, among others into the discussion on sustainable and affordable housing.
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. 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.
