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”.
