1) How will the Presidential candidate achieve the “social production of habitat” ?
2) How can we – HIC – outreach to many more partner advocacy organisations around the world , increasing the strength of all of our voices in achieving decent living habitats for all ?
3) Can and how should HIC help to achieve the Millennium development goals ?
4) In the UN Habitat Debate magazine March 2007, p6 “Three Things we Should Know About Slums” Daniel Bau, Director of UN-Habitat’s Regional and Technical Cooperation Division, writes “Slums are economically useful, a reflection of the human divide, and a bedrock of human resilience” . But much needs to be done – holistic approach to improvement, “…affirmative action to secure the urban poor access to land, housing, credit and basic service”, and “participatory and transparent governance”. Is Daniel Bau correct ? How can HIC accelerate these changes ?
