Research: Habitat III National Reporting Processes: Locating the Right to the City and the Role of Civil Society

This research aims to provide an examination of some key national reporting processes leading to the UN’s Habitat III conference in 2016. It examines both content of 4 draft national reports using a framework based on the Right to the City, as well as the processes behind the production of national reports unfolding in 8 countries, measuring the extent to which civil society groups are involved. The analysis took into particular consideration the cross-cutting issues of social diversity, rural-urban linkages as well as legal, policy and planning instruments necessary to operationalize the Right to the City principles. This research emerged from Habitat International Coalition (HIC) working group created to further understand the Habitat III process and how civil society might engage in it. It has been carried out by the Development Planning Unit (DPU) in collaboration with Habitat International Coalition (HIC). This survey represents the first step in a process to repair the national reporting process to ensure an assessment of governments’ implementation of the Habitat II commitments (1996) and applying the Right to the City principles in the outcomes of Habitat III (2016) and their implementation.
