The Czech government will next week discuss whether the country should bid to host a United Nations Habitat III conference on housing and sustainable development planned for 2016. The Czech Ministry of Regional Development has put forward a proposal to host the conference, which is held once every two decades. Around 20,000 delegates are expected to attend the conference, including the secretary general of the UN. Prague’s Congress Centrum would be the main venue in any Czech bid. A decision on what city will host the event will be made by the end of this year.
