Habitat Forum (INHAF), a non-profit society, was set up in 1999. It serves as a national level ‘synergy’ platform for NGOs, individuals, groups and agencies to exchange information, share learning, debate, plan joint action, advocate causes, represent concerns, undertake capacity building, and network on issues shaping urban and rural development.

INHAF deliberates on policies, programmes, projects, investments, and institutional arrangements that shape urban and rural settlements, within the framework of inclusivity, equity, disaster resilience, and sustainability.

INHAF’s experience lies in advocacy and capacity building activities in the areas of housing, policy, and inclusive development focusing on issues of quality of life, livelihoods and poverty.
