"COP-25 Briefing Note Integrating Human Rights in Climate Action", 2 Dec 2019
Decades of insufficient climate action has led to the increase in greenhouse gas concentrations which has resulted in what has been described as an unprecedented threat for human rights. Nevertheless, human rights are often ignored in climate responses, leading to ineffective policies and further harm to those impacted, particularly for local communities and indigenous peoples. Governments must take urgent action to effectively mitigate climate change and place human rights at the core of their climate policies to uphold their existing human rights obligations. This briefing note explores opportunities arising from the agenda of the conference for the UNFCCC Parties to promote human rights at COP-25.
