From 22 to 24 April 2013 at the Palais des Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, the four organizers are holding the second Housing Forum: Europe and Central Asia. This time they are joined by the United Nations Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT) as a fifth strategic partner, and to support the regional roll out of the UN Global Housing Strategy. The Forum will look at ways to address housing problems, develop affordable housing solutions for the poor on national and regional levels and bring together businesses and the public sector.
