Geneva Climate Change

PHOTO: The Philippines underscored support for broad-based participation and collaboration with non-governmental organizations, civil society and stakeholders to effectively tackle climate change and its human rights implications at the “2019 Geneva Forum on Climate Change at the Human Rights Council” on 06 June 2019.

The Forum provided an opportunity to take stock and reflect on achievements and challenges in tackling climate change in the Human Rights Council in the past 10 years, and at the same time, an opportunity to assess on how to move forward in a more responsive manner given current realities and contexts. The day-long event brought together experts and representatives of intergovernmental organizations, Permanent Missions, and civil society organizations in Geneva.

The Philippines, together with Bangladesh and Viet Nam, has been leading the climate change and human rights discourse in the Human Rights Council through an annual resolution.
