Habitat for Humanity works toward the recognition of housing as a platform for sustainable development and emphasizes the central role of housing in building better cities. To celebrate World Habitat Day and Urban October, Habitats Terwilliger Center for Innovation in Shelter, in partnership with the FairBuilding Network and Habitat for Humanity Philippines, will be hosting an online forum called, “A Ladder Up: The Construction Sector’s Role in Rebuilding Emerging Market Economies.” The virtual event will be held on October 8, Friday, 10:00-11:00AM (PHT). The forum will bring together experts from the construction labor sector to discuss its role in providing jobs to workers as a way for economic recovery. The forum will also launch the report “A Ladder Up,” which produces new estimates of the linkages of the construction sector to the rest of the economy and of its impact on employment in nine emerging market economies.
