Climate change and Human Rights

Nuriiia Mammadova, EO-205i, KNEU


Climate change directly and indirectly affects a number of human rights guaranteed by international law. States (guarantors) have a direct obligation to take effective measures to prevent and eliminate the consequences of climate change and, thus, to mitigate the consequences of change climate, and to ensure that all people have the necessary capacity to adapt to the climate crisis.

Climate justice requires that action to tackle change climate was consistent with existing agreements, obligations, standards and human rights principles.
