UIA International Forum "Affordable Housing Activation. Removing Barriers" 18- 20/05/2022 Madrid


Registration is now available for the UIA 2022 International Forum ‘Affordable Housing Activation: Removing Barriers’ to be held in Madrid, Spain from 18 to 20 May 2022. 

The Universal Declaration of Human Rights of 1948, the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights of 1966 and other international treatises on human rights recognise HOUSING AS A FUNDAMENTAL RIGHT FOR EVERYONE. A right that has been included as part of the Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda (SDG 11). In spite of this, 20% of the world’s population still has no access to decent housing. 

IN SEARCH OF REAL, GLOBAL AND URGENT SOLUTIONS  The event’s mission is to create global networks and alliances to foster international coordination, with
following objectives to achieve this:

  • Create a knowledge base through experts in different disciplines
  • Identify problems and good practices around the world
  • Put realistic and viable solutions into action
  • Define the lines of action for the long term
  • Focus on the climate emergency and other crises around the world
  • Be a collaborative, innovative, modern and paradigmatic event
