A forum focused on the real estate sector and its role in global economic recovery in the context of the recent financial crisis
Tuesday 26 June 2012
From 9:45 to 17:30
United Nations European headquarters, Palais des Nations
Real estate and property markets are the principle destination of a household’s savings and the most stable component of a country’s capital stock. Real estate markets have played a key role in recent crises and can play a key role in recovery as well. This forum will include policy-makers, private real estate experts, and academics to discuss how a robust real estate sector can be developed and used to benefit the broader economy.
The purpose of the conference is to provide a platform for knowledge and experience sharing which can result in more informed, effective and targeted government policies for real estate, housing, and land management.
The United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the UNECE Real Estate Market Advisory Group (REM) will host this conference to allow representatives from academic institutions, the private sector, and non-governmental organizations to share their points of view on:
• how the real estate market has evolved into its present form,
• current trends in the real estate sector, and
• recommendations for future developments in the real estate sector.
During the conference UNECE REM will present The Policy Framework for Sustainable Real Estate Markets: Principles and Guidance for the Development of a Country’s Real Estate Sector. This document serves as a holistic support tool to the member States to promote a framework for the development of the real estate sector to minimize the present financial crisis. It includes indicators on government and private debt, private credit flow, house prices and unemployment.
Recovery, Sustainability and Evolution forum will be held at the United Nations European headquarters, in Salle V of the Palais des Nations, Geneva, from 9:45 to 17:30. For further information, please click here.
