Human Rights Council And Security Council Resolutions On Climate Action

Human Rights Council and Security Council Resolutions on Climate Action

Unmoderated caucus ends at 10:43 a.m. on April 20th in the Human Rights Council, followed by a lunch break until 12 p.m. (Happy 4/20 to the supporters of a green new deal). The Security Council committee is attempting to pass a resolution that reaffirms human rights as “universal, indivisible, interdependent, and interrelated,” and the need for member states to acknowledge “individuals affected by environmental degradation, including climate refugees and internally displaced persons, and urging consensus on defining and protecting displaced persons while respecting their human rights.” Session commences with speeches given by Malaysia, focusing on the need for human rights to be considered regarding climate action and prevention. Delegates from the Maldives adequately discussed funding for these projects, with garnered support from Honduras, Malysha, and Bolivia, expressing their gratitude for the Maldives’ hard work outlining funding for this resolution.

Delegates are hoping to finalize working papers as an additional p27 is called into order. The meeting commences once again at 12:40 p.m. Opening remarks are given by Cameroon, pleased to announce that all working papers are now on the floor ready to go to the voting block. Malaysia, the Maldives, and Chile delegates announce their support and wish for a speedy and fair voting block. All working papers for the resolution regarding climate change have been submitted and finalized; delegates will be given time to review each paper, and voting blocks will be commenced at a different date.
