Both Habitat and the Municipality are interested in establishing a cooperation programme for the definition and execution of initiatives to promote sustainable urban development at the local level, as defined in the "Habitat Agenda", adopted in the Second UN Conference on Human Settlements (Habitat II), which relied on the presence of the Federal Government of Brazil and the administration of the city of Rio de Janeiro; and noting that Habitat-LAC, as a regional entity of Habitat, is in charge of the coordination , in its region, of the systematic monitoring of the results of the Habitat II Conference and of the progressive implementation of the "Habitat Agenda", as well as of global thematic campaigns launched by the agency as a part of its mandate to promote the principles and commitments agreed upon in that global conference.
