The International Housing Forum (IHF 2017) is a two-day event that focuses on the theme of ‘Sustainable Planning, Inclusive Communities’. The Forum will discuss ways to advance the UN’s New Urban Agenda through policy, planning, design and techology.
Together with Singapore's Housing & Development Board (HDB), the Eastern Regional Organisation for Planning & Human Settlements (EAROPH), the Singaporian Centre for Liveable Cities (CLC) and the Singapore Institute of Planners, IFHP organises the International Housing Forum 2017. The Forum will simultaniously function as IFHP's 2017 Summit. 


To further the discussion on this important area of work, the Housing & Development Board of Singapore is partnering with two international agencies, International Federation of Housing & Planning (IFHP) and Eastern Regional Organisation for Planning & Human Settlements (EAROPH), as well as Singapore Institute of Planners and Centre for Liveable Cities, to organise a two-day International Housing Forum in Singapore.

The International Housing Forum 2017 is scheduled on 7 to 8 September 2017, and is intended to bring together professionals, policy makers and academics in the planning and housing fraternity to share expertise and make positive changes to the urban environment. We estimate to have about 400 participants from all around the world to join us for this event.
