About IFHP

The International Federation for Housing and Planning (IFHP) is a world-wide network of professional institutions and individuals active in the broad fields of housing, urban development and planning.

The IFHP was founded in 1913 by Ebenezer Howard, the founder of the ‘Garden Cities and Town Planning Association’, which later became the IFHP and the Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA) separately.

The IFHP consists of members from some 60 countries who use the IFHP as a platform to exchange knowledge, expertise and information. Through this exchange, IFHP’s aim is to promote mutual learning and inspiration, and generate new ideas amongst professionals in order to equip them to find the best local solutions to the global challenges facing housing and planning today. IFHP has official relationships with intergovernmental organisations, such as UN-Habitat, UN-ECE, UNIP, UNESCO and the Council of Europe. It relates to specialised and regional international NGO’s such as ISOCARP (International Society of City and Regional Planners), CAP (Commonwealth Association of Planners) and EAROPH (Eastern Regional Organization for Planning and Housing).
