HRC-47: Joint statement: Item 2 – Interactive dialogue on the annual report of the High Commissioner

This is a joint NGOs statement of more than ten organizations delivered at the 47th session of the Human Rights Council. It welcomes the High Commissioner’s continued leadership in highlighting the human rights impacts of climate change and calls for the Council to appoint a Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and Climate Change. This would elevate the Council’s work on climate change in a systematic way, support States and people most impacted by runaway climate change, foster international cooperation and promote respect for human rights in climate responses.
