Climate Change and Human Rights: How to take a Rights-Respecting Approach to Your Climate Strategy
Human rights and climate change are inextricably linked. The impacts of rising global temperatures—natural disasters, the proliferation of vector-borne diseases, climate migration, famine, and drought—negatively impact many human rights, including the rights to shelter, natural resources, mobility, health, employment, and livelihoods. Join us to discuss the intersection between climate and human rights and learn more about creating long-term, resilient business strategies that address human rights impacts related to physical climate impacts as well as the transition to a low-carbon economy.
