Bookmark and Share

HIC was involved in several initiatives to lobby for civil society to take a key role in discussions (such as Habitat I and II), in order for the Right to the City to be considered in the New World Urban Agenda that will emerge from Habitat III, as well as to remind the Conference of the existing continuum between rural and urban areas. HIC participated in the Civil Society Planning Committee for Habitat III, as well as the Preparatory Committee, which met in New York in September 2014.
