Draft Climate Rights Declaration
The Draft Climate Rights Declaration combined new thinking and existing international human rights law to present an alternative formulation of rights that foregrounds human rights while simultaneously protecting the rights of non-human living beings and systems from climate harms. Following an open process for suggesting amendments, which drew comments from people all over the world, the Draft Declaration has now been superseded by the Declaration on Human Rights and Climate Change.
(The open process for suggesting amendments to the Draft Declaration ended on 19th February 2016).
The Draft Declaration is available in a range of languages.
