 The Regional Workshop supported the regional exchange of experiences and good practices in countries of the UNECE region on promoting access to decent, adequate, affordable and healthy housing as part of the countries’ responses to, and recovery plans for the COVID-19 pandemic (this included the topics of “greening” cities and housing, using architectural and urban planning solutions and innovations to promote better quality of life etc.)

The workshop also served as a preparatory meeting to the Ministerial Meeting on Urban Development, Housing and Land Management 2021 “Affordable, adequate, and resilient housing in liveable cities, including cities which face extreme weather conditions” (6-8 October 2021, Geneva, Switzerland). It informed participants on the progress made with the preparation of a report of the study “#Housing2030:  Improving Housing Affordability in the UNECE Region” being developed by UNECE in cooperation with Housing Europe, UN-Habitat and other partners; and zoomed into one of the four topics the study addresses – housing governance and regulation;

The regional workshop was organized by the Ministry of Environment and Spatial Planning of Slovenia in cooperation with UNECE and with the support of Housing Europe, the Union for the Mediterranean and UN-Habitat.
