GLOBAL CITIES HUB

Guided by the recent report of the UN Special Rapporteur on the right to adequate housing on housing affordability (A/78/192), experts will discuss what can be done to make housing affordable, protect tenants from rising rents and housing costs, and to prevent and end homelessness.
