This session focuses on the pressing global housing crisis, projecting that by 2030, approximately 3 billion people will require access to adequate housing. Beyond the immediate need for shelter, the session recognises housing as a pivotal element in confronting climate change challenges. The discussion emphasises the role of housing in providing essential services, dignified living conditions, and access to opportunities. Key strategies to be explored include efficient housing policies, the adoption of low-carbon materials, and the promotion of zero-waste practises to significantly reduce the environmental impact of the housing sector. The session will also mark the launch of the "Housing Matters" global campaign, aiming to raise awareness about interconnected issues, foster collaboration, and encourage a holistic approach to address the housing crisis and its implications. It will be an insightful discussion that seeks to turn the housing crisis into an opportunity for sustainable change.
