The Uganda National Housing Symposium is a national sector-wide platform convened and jointly coordinated by the Ministry of Lands Housing and Urban Development (MLHUD), Habitat for Humanity Uganda (HFHU), and key sector partners in real estate, banking and finance, constructions and manufacturing and media. It is a critical forum bringing all housing stakeholders in the country and beyond to collaborate, co-create, learn, and adapt solutions aimed at transforming Uganda’s housing sector.

It will also promote enterprise development, and knowledge sharing, and increase institutional and regulatory support for mainstreaming sustainability dimensions within housing projects, programs, and private-sector housing development.
