WUF11 Session – Unlocking affordable housing markets through a data revolution

Data and Affordability – Unlocking affordable housing markets through a data revolution

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

Join us for our data and affordability session at the World Urban Forum in Katowice, Poland on Monday 27th June, to build a home for human potential that doesn’t cost the earth.

A severe lack of data is inhibiting the growth of affordable housing markets that will deliver for people, profit and planet. In a world where at least 1.2 billion people live in substandard housing, there is a strong need for an improved supply of market intelligence to amplify the case for affordable housing, promote change and crowd in new actors and investors.

Moderated by the World Bank who will bring a global view on the role of data, this session will explore the impact of the data challenge for quality public and private sector decision making and investment and demonstrate how trail-blazing organisations are bridging this gap through innovative approaches and pioneering tech solutions.
