A healthy and sustainable environment is necessary for the full enjoyment of human rights, including rights to life and health. At the same time, the exercise of human rights such as rights to information, participation, and remedy is necessary for the effective protection of the environment. Professor Knox, the first UN Special Rapporteur on human rights and the environment, will describe this interdependence, and explain how it relates to two of the greatest environmental challenges of our time: climate change and the loss of global biodiversity. This presentation will be followed by two complementary presentations deepening on issues raised by the human rights and environmental nexus.
