The 8th Int'l Workshop:
Realistic Affordable Housing Approaches for the Poor
Ban Mankong, a UN Award program, failed. Only for privileged poor.
Ban Eua-Arthorn, a million housing units faied due to unreal demand.
Land sharing is a failure. There are only some atypical success.
Angels who helped the poor got awards but the poor got nothing.
Come and learn better approaches to help the poor and the country at large.
In India, Mother Teresa graciously helped the poor in her whole life, providing relief to thousands of people. However, slums still exist in Calcutta and every other major city in India. Even if there were a thousand Mother Teresa, slum problems would not fundamentally be solved. In fact, the situation in slums typically worsens over time. However, some countries have experienced a shrinkage in the number of slums because of the contributions of the private sector.
Come and exchange ideas with internationally acclaimed experts. Finding out new solutions for your country's low-income housing policy, penetrating market niches in local context, and responding to the needs of the poor without wasting state resources. (Limited to only 40 participants).

• Percent of slum housing in Bangkok, 43% in 1960 and 3% in 2005
• Percent of private housing in Bangkok, 3% in 1974 to 40% in 2005
• Formal housing (1970-2005), 2 mil. and 0.14 units by the private and public sectors
• A site of a former inner-city slum of 1,500 homes in late 1950's compared with the existing
uses to ensure that it should not be kept.
• Even dwellers in an exceptional land-owner slum would like to move out of it due to
substandard condition and environment.
• Units in owner-occupied condominium projects in the fringe where the rent is even lower
than that in slums in prime location.
• A high-rise condominium built for slum dwellers to compensate for the removal of them which is a good example of compensation.
