The 8th Int'l Workshop: Realistic Affordable Housing Approaches for the Poor

August 6 - 9 (Tuesday-Friday), 2019, 08:30 - 17:00 at Thai Real Estate Business School
Conducted in English
Date and location
August 6 - 9 (Tuesday-Friday), 2019, 08:30 - 17:00

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).

uses to ensure that it should not be kept.

substandard condition and environment.
