Summary Highlights
of the Meeting:

Friday, 25 September 2009

The 70th session of the UNECE Committee on Housing and Land Management (CHLM) resumed today for its final deliberations.

Addressing building and construction safety, CHLM Chair Doris Andoni said institutional, legal, financial and awareness issues often hinder the correct application of building technologies, and stressed the need for the CHLM to address this issue more directly. Azerbaijan proposed that a scientific conference on building safety be held in Baku, Azerbaijan, in 2010. Delegates addressed the importance of harmonized standards for building safety and resilience, with several suggesting that all natural hazards, not just earthquakes, be taken into account in the CHLM’s work.
