Joint Statement urging HRC establishment of a UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and Climate Change

, N° d'index: IOR 40/3875/2021

This is a joint statement, delivered in the context of the 46th Session of the Human Rights, on behalf of Franciscans International, the Center for International Environmental Law and eight other organizations, including Amnesty International. We welcome the call made by the Climate Vulnerable Forum at the UN Climate Conference in 2019 to establish a new UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and Climate Change. This proposal, backed by a growing number of States, reflects a decade-long request by a coalition of NGOs and Indigenous Peoples.
