A clean environment is a human right

Today is International Human Rights Day.

UN Council The main UN human rights body has voted overwhelmingly to recognize the right to a safe, clean, healthy and sustainable environment as a human right.

In 2021 the UN has also appointed an expert to monitor human rights in the context of a climate emergency.

Global recognition of this right will help empower local communities to protect their livelihoods, health and culture against environmental degradation, and will help governments develop stronger and more coherent human rights laws and policies.
