Global Trends, Opportunities and Innovations in Affordable Housing Finance

May 30, 2018 | 9:15 to 11:00 ET, 13:15 to 15:00 GMT

Preston Auditorium, World Bank Headquarters

Housing plays a key socio-economic role and represents the main wealth of the poor in most developing countries. The UN estimates that the global population will reach 8.5 billion by 2030, with almost 60% of the population living in urban centers. An estimated 3 billion people will need new housing and basic urban infrastructure by 2030. Against the backdrop of rapid urbanization putting pressure on housing delivery systems, many urban poor will not be able to afford formal housing without proper housing finance solutions. This puts the issue of housing finance at the forefront of global development agenda.

This 8th conference in the housing finance series aims to highlight innovation/technology and the role that this can play in making housing more affordable.

Our event, “Global Trends, Opportunities and Innovations in Affordable Housing Finance” - features speakers representing 4 regions of the world who will explore the future outlook, latest product innovations and the current thinking in developing affordable housing finance.
