See all tags

UNICEF Philippines is pleased to submit the following amicus curiae brief to the Honourable Commission on Human Rights of the Philippines with a view to assisting the Commission in its National Inquiry on the Impact of Climate Change on the Rights of the Filipino People and the Responsibility therefore of the “Carbon Majors”. In particular, this brief seeks to inform the Commission’s investigations by highlighting the specific vulnerabilities of children to the impacts of climate change in the Philippines, and the wide-ranging implications for their rights, as laid down in the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child. The brief draws on the UNICEF Philippines’ recently-completed Climate Landscape Analysis for Children in the Philippines – the first study of its kind – as well as other relevant national reports, research and frameworks, scientific evidence, and guidance from the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child and other human rights mechanisms.
