About MembershipMembership CategoriesHow to Join

By joining IHC Global, you’ll be part of a global constituency, dedicated to creating a more sustainable, prosperous, and equitable world.

IHC Global was co-founded and supported by the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and Habitat for Humanity International (HFHI), IHC is an independent, non-profit global membership coalition of NGOs, civil society organizations, private sector companies, corporations, and individuals committed to equitable urban development and sustainable, inclusive cities.

IHC works to achieve Goal 11 of the 2030 Global Agenda for Sustainable Development, which directs cities to become inclusive, resilient, safe and sustainable. IHC is committed to the principle that greater income equality and greater prosperity for all result from an integrated, resource-supported plan for the development of spatially, socially and economically inclusive cities.

“IHC Global brings a united voice supporting opportunities to do things better and differently.”

Urban growth has enormously exciting implications for innovation, creativity, economic growth and development, and more equitable prosperity.  But, it also presents tremendous challenges. Already, one billion people live in slums, where city level investment and governance structures have been outstripped by population growth, leading to a deteriorating environment and quality of life.  IHC Global brings a united voice supporting opportunities to do things better and differently, with economic and social policies that weave together the populations of a city rather than drive them apart.

Promoting urban sustainability isn’t just good for those in poverty. Building an equitable society stimulates the economy, creates a safer and cleaner environment, and improves the lives of all people.

Join IHC and help us work to create these changes. We are building a community of people from all sectors and walks of life who care about the future and recognize that it will be defined by what happens in cities. Join with like-minded IHC members across the globe and lend your voice to the global conversation about the urban future.  Be a change agent for good.
