Michelle Bachelet, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights

Open letter from UN High Commissioner for Human Rights calls on States at COP25 to ensure climate actions respect human rights

I call on States to be mindful of their commitment to respect, promote and consider their respective human rights obligations when taking climate action  to 1) renew and revise their nationally determined contributions (NDCs), 2) develop the rules for implementation of article 6 of the Paris Agreement and 3) address loss and damage [addressing the harms of climate change in an equitable manner].

I urge you to negotiate guidelines [under article 6] that are consistent with fundamental human rights....We have seen that projects are better designed and more sustainable when affected people, local communities and indigenous peoples are consulted, and safeguards and accountability mechanisms are in place.
