Hosted by IFHP's HWG

The event is hosted by the IFHP Housing Working Group. 
 
The IFHP’s Housing Working Group wants to be a knowledge catalyst either working in or with special interests in housing issues. The main objectives are: to provide an opportunity for dialogue on emerging policies and developing practices in relation to housing; to develop knowledge about housing and consider the implication for practice; to create a space for sharing information and experiences among international housing professionals; to monitor pilot projects and practical experiences to become a bridge between different context and relevant examples worldwide in a process of mutual learning which is core business for IFHP.
