HIC is involved in several initiatives, inside and outside the official session, to lobby for civil society (CS) and local government (LG)’s expectations and proposals for the New Habitat Agenda and Habitat III. This will include the substantive CS and LG involvement and participation in the Habitat III process; The outcomes of the research "Habitat III National Reporting Processes: Locating the Right to the City and the Role of Civil Society"; The status of the national and regional reports and the participation of CS and LG; and the outcomes of the latest events organized by the Global Platform for the Right to the City in Sao Paulo and Tunis. For HIC, the Habitat III process and contents must be grounded in (1) a faithful evaluation of commitments made at Habitat II; (2) a review of housing-rights and good-governance practices consistent with those essential aspects of the Habitat II promise; and (3) realistic preparation for the emerging human settlement-development challenges that light the way toward improving "balanced rural and urban development”.

The second session of the Preparatory Committee of the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development (Habitat III) will be held in Nairobi, Kenya, from Tuesday, 14 April to Thursday, 16 April 2015.
