Providing adequate housing and building cities for a sustainable recovery pathway after the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic will be the focus of the 8th Asia-Pacific Housing Forum: Building Forward Better for Inclusive Housing slated on 7–9 December.

Organized by Habitat for Humanity and SWITCH-Asia, the forum will be held in Bangkok, Thailand but given the pandemic, some sessions will still be held virtually.

The event aims to highlight policies and practical solutions that increase access to safe, decent, and affordable housing.

Speakers include Maimunah Mohd Sharif, executive director of UN-Habitat, and Jonathan Reckford, chief executive officer of Habitat for Humanity International. 

Government representatives, business leaders, policymakers, donor agencies, academics, urban planners, architects, property developers, researchers, advocates, and representatives from international organizations, nongovernmental organizations, social enterprises, housing finance organizations, technology companies, and youth organizations are expected to attend.
