The initial work areas of the programme are: 1) foster enabling frameworks to implement SBC policies; 2) promote Sustainable Housing, including affordable and social housing; 3) enhance Sustainability in the Building Supply Chain; 4) reduce climate impact and strengthen climate resilience of the buildings and construction sector; and 5) promote knowledge sharing, outreach and awareness raising.
