Under the title: "Housing at the heart of the New Urban Agenda", this gathering was be a regional space for exchange and discussion to share lessons learned, trends and challenges in the area of housing and urban habitat. The meeting was be held in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, from 12 to 14 June 2018.

After the first experience in Bogot√° 2012 and Monterrey 2015, the 3rd Latin American and Caribbean Forum on Housing and Habitat 2018 is part of a larger initiative called the Urban Housing Practitioners Hub (UHPH), a regional platform for knowledge management and promotion of best practices in urban habitat, which was officially presented at this event.

Since housing is a central element in the construction of cities, the 3rd Forum focused on identifying the steps from this sector towards the implementation of the New Urban Agenda (HIII); demonstrating through practices, approaches and policies how housing interventions can be integrated into a more holistic vision of habitat, bringing inclusion, resilience and sustainability to settlements and the city.

On this occasion, Habitat for Humanity, in conjunction with the Cities Alliance, UN-Habitat and other partners of UHPH, and with the special collaboration of the Government of the Dominican Republic, organized this space of exchange and discussion on Housing and Habitat.
