The Office of the High Commissioner on Human Rights (OHCHR) has released its study on the Impact of Climate Change on the Rights of Older Persons.
In this study, OHCHR examines the human rights impacts of climate change on older persons and the related legal and policy commitments and obligations of States. It also highlights the potential of older persons’ human rights-based climate action and provides examples of promising practice. The study concludes with a number of concrete recommendations.
AGE Platform Europe has contributed to this study in reponding to a consultation on impact of climate change on older people’s rights launched by the OHCHR last year. You can read more on our contribution in this article.
