Climate change is one of the greatest threats to human rights of our generation, posing a serious risk to the fundamental rights to life, health, food and an adequate standard of living of individuals and communities across the world.
In recent decades, armed conflict has blighted the lives of millions of civilians. Violent conflicts grow out of the quest for self-determination, demands for fair access to resources and resistance to discrimination. Human rights abuses create cycles of dehumanisation based on fear.
The global COVID-19 crisis has been fuelled by deepening poverty, rising inequalities, structural and entrenched discrimination and other gaps in human rights protection. Only measures to close these gaps and advance human rights can ensure we fully recover to a world that is better and more resilient, just and sustainable.
