Climate actions need to respect, protect and fulfill human rights. Past experiences with mechanisms established under the UNFCCC are critical for shaping the newly established Sustainable Development Mechanism (SDM). The event will reflect on lessons learnt from positive and negative impacts of climate mitigation actions. Speakers will underline the need for robust safeguards for future climate action and discuss the way forward. At the occasion of the event, a new report “Human rights implications of climate change mitigation actions” will be launched.
