Guzmán-Barraza joins UN General Assembly of Partners
Following paticipation at Habitat III, Guzmán-Barraza joined the Civil Society Organizations (CSO) Partner Constituent Group (PCG) of the General Assembly of Partners (GAP), representing non-governmental organizations and institutions that manifest interests and will of citizens. The Co-Chairs of the CSO PCG are: Jane Katz from Habitat for Humanity and Greg Budworth from Compass Housing Services in Australia.
Through this Partner Constituent Group, we hope to contribute to shaping the discussion

and local levels of government. The NUA, launched at the Habitat III UN Conference in Ecuador, provides guidelines as to how the future urban settlements around the world should unfold the next 20 years.
