High Level Political Forum, New York, July 2018

International Peace Institute, 777 United Nations Plaza, New York

17 July 8:00-10:00am​

The High Level Political Forum 2018 is a unique opportunity to share lessons and progress made by governments. Bahrain is organizing a Side Event “Adequate, Safe and Affordable Housing as a Pillar for Sustainable Development” which will gather countries to share experiences and contribute to strengthen the political commitment towards the provision of adequate housing for all.

Besides Bahrain, Angola, Bulgaria, Malaysia and Paraguay will participate  as all have increased efforts to achieve SDG 11 and in particular Target 11.1. These five countries have invested in improving the capacity of national and local governments to formulate and implement evidence-based and participatory policies and strategies contributing to better access to housing for all.

The Side Event expects to strengthen the exchange experiences and foster partnership between countries and organizations active in promoting better access to housing.   The expected outcomes include stock-taking of recent trends and good practices and advance discussions on a longer-term collaboration and the establishment of a community of practice on affordable housing solutions led by the five countries as the entry point of 5 continents.​
