The European Policy Centre is delighted to invite you to the second meeting of the EPC Task Force on Affordable and Decent Housing Solutions, which will discuss how to boost investment and better direct it towards the most vulnerable segments of society.

Investment in affordable housing is in decline, with a lack of new constructions and renovation projects. Since 2008 investment in housing development has decreased by 27%. The share across the EU looks very uneven, with four countries - Germany, France, Italy and Spain - accounting for around 65% of all investment. Thus, it is essential to explore how innovative financial instruments can respond to the growing demand in decent and affordable housing solutions, map opportunities and understand how good practice can be increased and replicated to those areas where housing exclusion is most acute.

This Task Force meeting will analyse the key drivers of success of existing investment practices in affordable housing and discuss how their impact and geographical distribution can be strengthened and expanded.
