    Abstract The issue of housing links multiple SDGs. For the urban poor, adequate, safe, and affordable housing is a prerequisite for economic prosperity and social inclusion. Well-defined and action-oriented delivery of affordable housing is needed to achieve SDG 11 (sustainable cities & communities) and other SDGs addressing access to basic services, economic growth, sustainable production and consumption, inequalities, and climate change. Recommendations: • Prioritise integrated slum redevelopment for better economic opportunities through inclusive and cost-sensitive approaches. • Promote integrated, inclusive, and accessible green space to enhance liveability through a city-wide approach. • Apply regenerative design and integrate housing with clean public transport to improve energy efficiency and deliver net-zero carbon housing. • Adopt community-designed, water-sensitive infrastructure, including local sanitation systems, wetlands and biofiltration gardens, and stormwater harvesting.
