The Webinar on “Quality of Law and Related Indicators of the New Urban Agenda Monitoring Framework” took place on 20 May 2021. It covered the following three indicators:
During the PowerPoint presentation it was pointed out that Laws and regulations may seem neutral at face value, but in practice have the effect of excluding some individuals/groups from the provision of basic services. For example: a country might have a law that gives the right to water and sanitation to everyone. However, many public utilities require applicants for water and electricity connections to submit many documents including title deeds. This has the practical effect of excluding informal settlers in urban areas from basic services.
We would like members of this Forum to give us similar examples of situations in their country where a right to a service exists but only if one has a title deed. Participants are welcome to share comments on other aspects of the Quality of Law and related indicators.
