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 promotes 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.
“No matter who we are or where we come from we all deserve to have a decent life. At Habitat for Humanity India, this is what unites us. A large part of India’s population lives in multi-dimensional poverty. Housing is foundational and plays a pivotal role in breaking the cycle of poverty. India’s need for adequate shelter is huge. Habitat aims to change the existing poverty housing landscape by building decent, affordable homes and improved sanitation units for low-income, marginalised families. Asia Pacific Housing Forum 6 is a great platform for sector experts, practitioners, academicians to come together to develop a road map for shelter and sanitation through people, public and private partnership.”
