The human rights of the climate and environmental displaced

  • An initiative of the International Centre for Comparative Environmental Law (ICEL), an international NGO in special consultative status with ECOSOC, accredited to the United Nations Environment Assembly and its subsidiary bodies and an official partner of the IOF.
  • The direct and indirect effects of climate change and the many natural disasters associated with it are causing an increasing number of people to flee their homes. However, the international law of refugees of the Geneva Convention is not applicable to them. There is therefore a serious gap that undermines the human rights of these populations, largely in the countries of the South.
  • The side event will aim to highlight initiatives to guarantee the human rights of the environmentally displaced and the prospects for the implementation of the climate convention and the Paris agreement.The side event will aim to highlight initiatives to guarantee the human rights of the environmentally displaced and the prospects for the implementation of the climate convention and the Paris agreement.
Program of the event

On the occasion of this presentation at the French Pavilion during COP 25, Emilie Gaillard, general coordinator of the Normandy Chair for Peace, gave a presentation entitled “The transformation of human rights in the light of climate justice on a transpatial and transtemporal scale”.

She underlined the processes of mutation and metamorphosis that such an approach is in the process of initiating: the recognition of transgenerational rights (for present and future generations), of the duties of States across spaces (transpatial solidarities).
