GPR2C Statement on core messages for Habitat III in the World Habitat Day 2015

In the context of the preparatory process towards the 3rd UN Conference on Housing and Sustainable Human Settlements (Habitat III, Quito, October 2016), considering the legacy of Habitat II UN Conference(1996) and inspired by the occasion of the World Habitat Day 2015, we launch a strong call for the inclusion of the Right to the City as the cornerstone of the New Urban Agenda and of the responsibility of all the actors for its implementation. In order to do that, it is essential to ensure the participation of civil society organizations and local governments – on equal basis with respect to the other actors – as key partners in the definition and implementation of the New Urban Agenda.
