The Asia-Pacific Housing Forum is a biennial conference organized by Habitat for Humanity. It gathers under one roof, public, private and people sector stakeholders engaged in seeking solutions to poverty housing issues. The next Forum, the fourth, will be held in Manila from 2-4 October 2013.
The Forum is of interest to all stakeholders engaged in providing poverty housing solutions. They include policy-makers, urban planners, architects, academics, housing sector developers, NGOs, donor agencies, international organizations, researchers, and private and public sector players.

- Showcase creative market approaches & innovative solutions that increase products, services & financing for affordable housing
- Promote policies & systems that advance access to adequate, affordable housing
