What is our Forum?

Housing at the Center of the New Urban Agenda. Following the initial experience in Bogotá 2012 and Monterrey 2015, the 3rd Latin American and Caribbean Housing and Habitat Forum 2018 is now part of a much larger initiative: the regional platform for knowledge management and the promotion of best practices for the urban habitat, known as the Urban Housing Practitioner’s Hub (UHPH), which will be officially presented at this event.

Given that housing is a pillar in the construction of cities, the 3rd Forum will focus on identifying progress in this sector towards the implementation of the New Urban Agenda (HIII), while demonstrating, through practices, approaches, and policies, how housing interventions can be integrated into a more holistic view of the habitat, thereby fostering inclusion, resilience and sustainability in settlements and the city.

This time, Habitat for Humanity, in conjunction with Cities Alliance, UN-Habitat and other UHPH partners, and with the special collaboration of the government of the Dominican Republic, extends an invitation to join in this regional space for exchange and discussion to share lessons learned, trends and challenges in housing and urban habitat, in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, on June 12-14, 2018.
