Human rights must be part of any climate change agreement in Paris

“Climate change is principally caused by the actions of human beings,” said Craig Mokhiber, head of the Development and Economic Social Issues division for the UN Human Rights Office. “It is a direct result of policies and practices. And if you hold this against the obligation of all States in the world to promote and protect human rights. . . we believe there has been a direct breach of those rights.”
Mokhiber made his comments ahead of the 21st UN Climate Change Conference, also called the Conference of Parties (COP 21), to take place in Paris this week. In addition, 30 States have signed The Geneva Pledge on Human Rights and Climate Change, showing their support for human rights in the run up to the COP 21 negotiations.
