Victoria Lichet EPL webinar The Human Right to a Clean, Healthy & Sustainable Environment,

Victoria Lichet on the September 20th EPL webinar about The Human Right to a Clean, Healthy & Sustainable Environment Here is the link to the complete video of the Webinar : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vPTPPGLpRFI&feature=youtu.be On September 20th, 2022, the Environmental Policy and Law Journal hosted a webinar in which prominent speakers including: Edith Brown Weiss ( Georgetown University Law Center, USA), Gudmundur Eiriksson, (International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea, Iceland), Karan Singh, ( Parliament, India), Jonas Ebbesson, (Stockholm University, Sweden), Ole Kristian Fauchald, (University of Oslo, Norway), Philippe Cullet (SOAS University of London, UK) and many others ... reflected on the recent adoption of the UNGA resolution 76/300 recognizing the right to a clean, healthy and sustainable environment. This webinar seeked to make sense of the global significance of this advent of this normative development soon after the Stockholm+50 Conference (2–3 June 2022). The timing of the webinar coincided with the commencement of the high-level segment of the 77th UNGA in New York. The discourse with a panel of eminent scholars and practioners provided an opportunity to: (i) explain the context and significance for celebrating the UNGA’s (and the HRC) emphatic recognition of the human right to (clean, healthy, and sustainable) environment for the SDGs 2030 as well as “other rights and existing international law;” (ii) normative value of the UNGA resolution for universality of the environmental human rights; and (iii) impact of the human right to the environment on treaty-based international environmental obligations, and observance of human rights of individuals and inanimate objects, as well as domestic policies, legislations, and litigations. In this webinar, Victoria Lichet discussed the possibility of the UNGA resolution recognizing the right to a healthy environment to pave the way towards an international convention on environmental rights, such as the Global Pact for the Environment. The Global Pact for the Environment offers to bring together environmental rights and duties in an instrument that would serve as a reference for stakeholders: citizens, companies and states. This instrument, combined with other national and multilateral agreements, would establish a new threshold in international environmental law and would inspire national legislation towards more ambitions to achieve climate change and environmental objectives.
