Habitat Agenda paragraph 26: Ensure full realisation of human rights
26. We reaffirm and are guided by the purposes and principles of the Charter
of the United Nations and we reaffirm our commitment to ensuring the full realization
of the human rights set out in international instruments and in particular,
in this context, the right to adequate housing as set forth in the Universal
Declaration of Human Rights and provided for in the International Covenant on
Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, the International Convention on the Elimination
of All Forms of Racial Discrimination, the Convention on the Elimination of
All Forms of Discrimination against Women and the Convention on the Rights of
the Child, taking into account that the right to adequate housing, as included
in the above-mentioned international instruments, shall be realized progressively.
We reaffirm that all human rights - civil, cultural, economic, political and
social - are universal, indivisible, interdependent and interrelated. We subscribe
to the principles and goals set out below to guide us in our actions.
