Realising Affordability in Global Housing Markets ”

4th to the 6th of  November 2019  in Cape Town , South Africa , at the Westin Hotel.

Perhaps the most critical issue facing housing markets worldwide, whether in established or emerging markets, is housing affordability.  Easily associated with developing economies in Africa, South Asia, and Central and South America, the housing affordability challenge is increasingly evident and articulated in the deeper housing markets of Europe, Asia, Australia, and North America.  Housing finance is an important enabler of affordability.  We expect, therefore, that the design of housing finance products and services is responsive to the needs and capacities of the target market.  It is in this that the challenge lies: labour market dynamics, urbanisation, climate change and a range of other demographic factors all impact profoundly on the shape and size of the target market, offering opportunities for new markets while constraining those that existing products serve.  The target market is changing – can housing finance respond appropriately?

This year’s African Union for Housing Finance Conference will be under the theme, “Realising Affordability in Global Housing Markets”  the conference will therefore be a Joint AUHF & IUHF Conference and AGM: Incorporating the 35th Annual AUHF Conference & AGM and the 31st International Union for Housing Finance (IUHF) World Congress.  The conference is  growing every year in size, content and reputation.  This year, through the partnership with the IUHF, the conference  will reflect content and experiences from across the world, and is expected to draw in a much wider international profile of delegates.


The conference will be held from  4th to the 6th of  November 2019  in Cape Town , South Africa , at the Westin Hotel.

The conference will be bilingual with sessions offered in French and English and simultaneous translation.
