SECOND UN CONFERENCE ON: HUMAN SETTLEMENTS:: YEAR-END UPDATE

As preparations for the Second United Nations Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat II) continue, the UN General Assembly concluded the year by adopting a resolution that endorses the decisions of the Preparatory Committee for the Conference, including convening the third session of the Preparatory Committee from 5-16 February 1996 at UN Headquarters in New York. This special issue of the Earth Negotiations Bulletin will review relevant activities that have taken place since the second session of the Preparatory Committee, summarize the results of the General Assembly's consideration of Habitat II, and highlight upcoming events.

This issue of the Earth Negotiations Bulletin is published as part of a series of year-end issues intended to summarize the current state of play in the various sustainable development conferences and negotiations reported on by the Bulletin in 1995.
