WUF11 Session – Climate-Smart Affordable Housing: A Route to Green Infrastructure in Cities

Climate-Smart Affordable Housing: A Route to Green Infrastructure in Cities

Eleventh World Urban Forum – Transforming our Cities for a Better Urban Future

Join us for our Climate-Smart Affordable Housing session at the World Urban Forum in Katowice, Poland on Wednesday 29th June, to build a home for human potential that doesn’t cost the earth.

70% of buildings that will exist in Africa and Asia by 2050 are yet to be built, a critical opportunity exists to ensure that solutions to the housing crisis support – and do not undermine – the Paris Agreement and global sustainability goals.

Reall are bringing together sector experts to explore and provide evidence that green affordable housing does not have to be expensive or complex. We will highlight how cities can support the delivery of this infrastructure, without requiring a trade-off between shelter, resilience, and climate needs. We will address how partnerships, linking global investment to local action, has achieved tangible progress from which lessons can be drawn and feed into scale up initiatives.
