Discussion Brief Series On The Right to a Healthy Environment In Southeast Asia

There is now widespread recognition that human rights norms apply to environmental and climate change issues, with more than 80 percent of UN Member States recognizing the human right to a healthy environment in their national laws. RWI, through its Regional Asia and the Pacific Program on Human Rights and Sustainable Development, is committed to advancing this right in Asia and the Pacific through expanding the knowledge bases, along with capacity development and strategic partnerships, on incorporating human rights into environmental protection and climate change measures that will ensure a sustainable development that leaves no-one behind. The following discussion brief series on the right to a healthy environment in Southeast Asia synthesizes and customizes the findings and recommendations from RWI’s thematic study entitled ‘Prosperous and green in the Anthropocene: The human right to a healthy environment in Southeast Asia (2020)’ and provides entry points and recommendations for national human rights institutions, national courts, environmental policy makers, the corporate sector and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).
