U.S. Conference on Housing, Land, and Property in Crisis Contexts
The first U.S. conference on Housing, Land, and Property (HLP) in Crisis Contexts is planned with Howard University's Department of Architecture and will be hosted at Howard University in Washington D.C., USA on June 5th and 6th. The conference will bring together academia, donor organizations, the private sector, the United Nations and International Organizations, and global NGOs to discuss HLP issues faced by people and communities after conflicts and disasters worldwide.
The purpose of the event is to share experiences and practices relating to HLP issues faced by displaced and at-risk communities to build a community of practice and identify steps forward. Initially convened by internationally focused humanitarian and development organizations, this conference will also look at HLP with marginalized and indigenous communities in the United States to share learnings with colleagues working internationally.
