Ecuador is the first country to recognize the rights of nature on its Constitution, enacted on 2008. It also includes the recognition of the right to the city, the right to a healthy and safety habitat, and access to an adequate housing as well. The activities developed by UN-Habitat in Ecuador are totally engaged with the Constitution and with the National Plan for Good Living, as it is the road map for public action to construct people’s rights.
