Housing and Land Rights Network (HLRN), the human rights-specialized structure of Habitat International Coalition (HIC) invites its Members, Friends and allies to join a side event at the Global Land Tools Network (GLTN) Partner Meeting, that will be held from 2-4 May 2023, Nairobi, Kenya, and online.

The HIC-HLRN event will take place in Nairobi, from 08:00 to 09:30 AM (UTC+3), on Wednesday, 3 May. You are invited to join the session in person, or online at this link.

HIC-HLRN will present a well-developed and practical method of quantifying impacts of land, housing and habitat loss due to human rights violations as a model for determining loss and damage associated with climate change. The presentations build a case for operationalizing recognized climate-justice principles and demonstrate the proven versatility and scalability of a quantification method already applied in 30 applications across seven countries so far.

The event also will demonstrate the utility of community-based data collection by civil society allies. Following the presentations, a discussion will seek to stimulate debate and ideas for GLTN Partner collaboration to align quantification tools with a human-centered approach to the CoP Loss & Damage Mechanism and the newly established Loss & Damage Fund.
