UNCHS/UN-HABITAT RESOLUTIONS


This compilation does not include the decisions and resolutions of the first session of the United Nation Commission on Human Settlements (UNCHS), which was held at the UN headquarters in New York during 03 – 07 April 1978, because the session report is in a narrative format and does not indicate any resolutions as such nor numbers them.

The Resolutions of the 9th session of the Commission are also not included as the UNHABITAT web-page of “Past GC records” has the report of the 10th session under it. Previous requests for a correction did not get any response and the confusion of the archives, which has some other similar failures remains at the moment.
