International Housing Forum

Thursday 07.09.2017 to Friday 08.09.2017

Following the successful organisation of the Habitat III conference in Quito last year, there is now a renewed focus worldwide towards housing and sustainable urban development.

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.


The forum will cover four main topics:
  1. Housing Policies, Governance & Finance (Day 1)
  2. Planning & Design of Liveable Cities (Day 1)
  3. Resilient & Inclusive Communities (Day 1)
  4. Sustainable Development & Smart Technology (Day 2)
