The World Bank Group will hold its 7th Global Housing Finance Conference on May 25-26, 2016. Jointly hosted biannually by the World Bank and the International Finance Corporation (IFC), the underlying theme of the conference is based around the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which replace the Millennium Development Goals. Goal 11 focuses on sustainable cities and communities, and the conference, through robust panel discussions, will explore new and innovative ideas on how to ensure access for all to adequate, safe and affordable housing and basic services.
As in previous years, the conference attracts an audience of officials, practitioners, NGOs and donors from the developed countries and emerging markets. The principal aim of the Conference is to exchange views and experiences and derive the key operational conclusions for policy makers and housing finance practitioners. The conference creates awareness of the major challenges in developing or strengthening housing finance markets and seeks cooperation for better solutions.
