Europe and Central Asia housing forum

Another interesting event coming up, this time in Budapest from 4-6 April, the first ever ‘Housing Forum for Europe and Central Asia‘. Certainly an idea whose time has come, given all the ructions in Europe over the last two decades over denationalization, privatization, discrimination and, not least, restitution. Apparently a successful format as well, given that we are now approaching the third iteration of the Asia Pacific version. And some very interesting topics under discussion, not least disaster risk reduction, social sustainability, and attention to vulnerable and marginalized populations.
