The IAI – a network of inhabitants’ organisations that has been present on both a local and global level since 2003 – finds itself in a special situation: between the evaluation of the successes and failures in the implementation of the Strategic Lines 2011-2016 and the creation of the Strategic Lines 2016-2020.
As part of a veritable platform of exchanges and shared initiatives, from the 11th - 15th January 2015 in La Bergerie, France, the IAI brought together representatives from social movements, grassroots organisations and inhabitants’ networks from 21 countries from every continent, in order to define the Strategic Lines and an action plan for the coming 5 years. In accordance with the People’s Committee for Land – Resistance Platform to Habitat III established in Quito, a call for the creation of national and local People’s Committees was launched. These would be united participants in the mobilisation towards the People’s Social Territorial Forum Alternative to Habitat III. in October 2016.
