Here is the conference document (sorry for the mess, but we didn't post this disaster of HTML coding!! Please blame the United Nations!!) that will be debated in Istanbul.
We will continue our live coverage of Habitat II through 19 June. We will have color photos, recorded RealAudio interviews (and perhaps a delayed feed from the Conference opening) and daily issues in English and French of the Earth Negotiations Bulletin. The wires are a little frayed right now on our end, so other elements of our coverage may be delayed. The opening issue of the Bulletin for Habitat II will be available by Monday morning. Stay tuned!!
The Third Session of the Preparatory Committee for the UN Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat II) ended in New York during February. Although the spirit of negotiation was good, procedural bottlenecks and the volume of work to be finished produced less than favorable results.
The Earth Negotiations Bulletin has prepared a comprehensive summary of the Third Session of the PrepCom, which includes an analysis of the process to date.
In addition, we have posted RealAudio recordings of the final statements If you have any late-breaking news, updates or recent material on Habitat II, send us e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
We published daily issues of the Earth Negotiations Bulletinin French and English from here in New York. Our daily issues are 2000-word summaries of the official proceedings.
