New Delhi, August 30, 2023: Habitat for Humanity India, a leading housing non-profit organisation, is set to organise an ‘Urban Dialogue’ on ‘Policy Solutions for Adequate Housing to Build Inclusive and Resilient Urban Settlements’. Set to take place on September 1, 2023 at the India Habitat Centre in New Delhi, the event aims to bring together stakeholders, policymakers, and experts in a collaborative effort to provide a platform for robust discussions and innovative thinking around urban housing policies and solutions.

“For the last 40 years, Habitat India has worked hand in hand with communities, volunteers, and partners, to build homes filled with hope.

The Urban Dialogue is a testament to our shared dedication of addressing one of the most pressing issues of our time – housing”, said James Samuel, National Director (Interim), Habitat for Humanity India

The Urban Dialogue is being organised in collaboration with UN-HABITAT, International Finance Corporation (IFC), and Sphere India.
