COP 25: States poised to set the stage for decades of human rights abuses

, Index number: IOR 40/1574/2019

With just a few hours left for states to reach agreements at the 2019 UN climate negotiations at the 25th Conference of Parties (COP25) of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, Amnesty International calls on negotiators to finally listen to people’s demands and put human rights considerations at the centre of their decisions. If they fail to do so, they will set the stage for decades of human rights abuses for which they will be responsible. Negotiators must commit to urgent and human rights compliant climate action, reject rules that will allow human rights abuses and agree to provide remedy, including financial compensation, to people whose rights have been negatively affected by climate impacts.
