10 February 2018 — UN-Habitat and the Lincoln Institute of Land Policy (USA) in collaboration with the Torcuato Di Tella University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, organised a training program during the 9th Session of the World Urban Forum in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on 10 February 2018. The session was attended by 123 participants from various countries and cities.
The training focused on inclusionary housing policies and strategies. It demonstrated practical ways to design and implement smart land management tools that enable cities, local and national governments to supply serviced land for housing development within the urban core. Through a combination of housing policies, financial tools, fiscal and legal instruments, urban planning and land management tools, the training course developed ways to meet the Sustainable Development Goal 11.1 that aims at ensuring access for all to adequate, safe and affordable housing and basic services and upgrade slums.
