Having an adequate home is now, more than ever, a matter of life and death.
Continuing the celebration of World Habitat Day and as part of Urban October, Habitat for Humanity Philippines and Habitat’s Terwilliger Center for Innovation in Shelter (TCIS), in partnership with University of Asia and the Pacific’s Center for Research and Communication, hosted the “BAHAYnihan: Rising Together through Housing” — an online forum that aims to build awareness of the housing needs of the country and the unserved population. Leading experts in housing sector came together for a thought-provoking discussion on tackling housing issues intensified by the COVID-19 pandemic and finding solutions to the Philippines’ increasing housing gap.
Happened last October 28, the forum officially launched new housing reports commissioned by TCIS, entitled: (1) Clearing the Housing Backlog: An updated supply and demand study on unserved owner-driven construction segment in the Philippines, and (2) Impact of COVID-19 on the low-income housing market systems in the Philippines.
