Habitat III National Reporting Guidelines (merged with State obligations)

This Excel file attempts to merge the national Habitat III report outline proffered by UN-Habitat with the already-standing commitments of states and UN bodies at Habitat II (1996). For those following UN-Habitat`s advice, the left column leads with the agency’s reduced six reporting categories, followed by the middle column of corresponding Habitat II commitments. The right column forms a reference of legal citations and excerpts defining the human rights obligations of states pertaining to the subjects of both preceding columns. The purpose of this tool is to provide National Habitat Committees, as well as civil society and academic stakeholders preparing parallel reports, with a more-integrated methodology for national Habitat III reporting criteria informed of the existing relevant Habitat commitments and corresponding obligations of reporting states.
