9th Global Affordable Housing Conference (by the World Bank)


The World Bank Group will hold its 9th Global Affordable Housing Conference on May 31- June 2, 2023 at the World Bank Group Headquarters in Washington D.C. Participants have also the possibility to join virtually the conference. The theme of the conference is “Looking ahead: unlocking access to affordable, green and resilient housing through innovation.”  Entrepreneurs, financiers,  policy makers, researchers and development partners will discuss innovative ideas and cutting edge solutions to build and finance affordable and green housing around the world.

This year’s conference theme is “Looking ahead: unlocking access to affordable, green and resilient housing through innovation”. While the need for massive investment in the affordable housing sector have never been higher, countries all over the world are facing difficult macroeconomics conditions, and households have a lower purchasing power, while having to deal with increased construction costs and face the impact of climate change. If we want to make a significant, and lasting impact in addressing the affordable housing gap, we therefore need to look for innovative ways to build and finance resilient, green affordable housing.

The Global Affordable Housing Conference brings together an audience of high-level officials, practitioners, successful entrepreneurs, academicians from developed countries and emerging markets and provide a unique platform to share information, learn about the latest innovation and network with peers.

During this 3-day hybrid event you will hear about cutting edge innovation and solutions that are happening and already making an impact and discuss how to best replicate them in different local context.
