about

The buildings and construction sector is characterized by a fragmented value chain. Stakeholder coordination (national and local authorities, international organizations, companies, civil society and financial institutions) is lacking.

The Global Alliance for Buildings and Construction (GABC) was launched to bring them together.

Today, the GABC gathers 24 countries and 72 non-state organizations from all over the world. It welcomes new members interested in contributing to the global transition towards a low-carbon, energy efficient, and resilient buildings and construction sector.
