IN THE CORRIDORS

Both NGO and government delegates expressed support for the Australian proposal to make Habitat II a "Conference of Commitments." The proposal resembles an Australian initiative at the Fourth World Conference on Women. NGOs want the commitments appended to the report of the Conference and welcome the additional call for commitments by intergovernmental organizations. Some are also calling for commitments by local authorities.
