UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and the Environment: statement on human rights obligations & Climate Case Ireland

Dear all,

Some of you may be interested in this new statement from the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights and the Environment, entitled “Statement on the human rights obligations related to climate change, with a particular focus on the right to life”.

The statement was published yesterday by the Special Rapporteur in the context of Climate Case Ireland (due to be heard by Ireland’s High Court over several days from 22 January 2019), but is likely to be of wider interest to other current and prospective climate litigants.
