Asia Pacific Housing Forum 6
6th & 7th July 2017
New Delhi, India
The Asia-Pacific Housing Forum celebrates avant-garde and cutting-edge housing technologies. The INNOVATE.SHELTER AND INNOVATE.SANITATON Competition is one such platform provided to organizations to encourage the conception, development and implementation of inventive projects that address housing needs to provide sustainable solutions for the same.
Inspired by the forum’s thematic focus on ‘Affordable Housing and Sanitation Ecosystems’, two organizations shall be selected to have their project featured at the INNOVATE.SHELTER catalogue, distributed to all attendees of the 6th Asia-Pacific Housing Forum. The top two innovations shall also be invited to present during the 6th Asia-Pacific Housing Forum at New Delhi.
The housing and sanitation sector is in constant need of context specific, efficient and scale-able designs. In light of the New Urban Agenda, housing and sanitation are some of the priority sectors which are in a pursuit to better the lives of many.
The competition is open to organizations from any sector, including non-profit organizations, startups, social enterprises, private businesses, multilateral and public entities, academia or any combination of these organizations that are interested in sharing concrete initiatives and solutions to issues related to inadequate housing and improper sanitation in Asia-Pacific.
Projects will be reviewed by a Habitat for Humanity India panel and judged according to the selection criteria and their relevance to the Housing Forum’s objectives and tracks. The panel shall shortlist six submissions to present to the Steering Committee, who shall make the final selection of two innovative projects (one each for shelter and sanitation) to be included in the catalogue.
