Call for Inputs: The Right to a Safe, Clean, Healthy and Sustainable Environment

Human Rights Council Resolution 37/8 tasks the Special Rapporteur with hosting an experts’ seminar “on experience and best practices of States at the national and regional levels with regard to human rights obligations relating to the environment.” The Special Rapporteur, Mr. David Boyd, will prepare a summary report on the seminar as well as a thematic report focusing on good practices specifically related to the implementation of the right to a safe, clean, healthy and sustainable environment (a right now legally recognized by more than 150 States). For these purposes, he is seeking inputs from States and other stakeholders on this important topic through responses to the brief questionnaire below.

Your replies will inform the Special Rapporteur’s analysis and feed into his thematic report, which will be presented to the Human Rights Council in March 2020.

Questionnaire (En, Sp, Fr) Submissions to the questionnaire are available.
