Nelson Saule Junior, Instituto Pólis on behalf of Global Platform for the Right to the City (GPR2C) to Citiscope

“We welcome the Zero Draft that incorporates the road to equality between women and men in the preamble to the declaration, stating that, ‘[The cities] are places in which we, the people, aim to achieve gender equality, empower women and girls…’

“We wish that this sentence were to say: ‘we, the people, have an obligation to achieve gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls and we pledge that it will.’ We note that the declaration itself incorporates the road to equality between women and men in areas that we have proposed, but it is still insufficient and insists on including women as part of ‘vulnerable groups’, which frequently generates assistance policies rather than ones that consider women subject to rights.

Global Platform for the Right to the City in @Citiscope!


"Members of the Global Platform are also concerned over the apparent reduction of the Habitat Agenda to a solely urban focus. If this translates into a “New Urban Agenda”, as the 20-year strategy to come out of Habitat III is being called, it would fail to give adequate priority to the continuity — indeed, the symbiosis — between rural and urban areas."
