The NBSAP Forum, along with the Forum for Law, Environment, Development and Governance (FLEDGE), the UN Environment Law Division, UNDP and Swedbio at the Stockholm Resilience Centre, co-hosted a three-part webinar series on human rights, environment and biodiversity.
Environmental laws related to protection and governance incorporate various tenets of human rights. Principle 1 of the Stockholm Declaration, which was adopted at the U.N. Conference on Human Environment in 1972, recognizes the right to freedom, equality and adequate conditions of life, and underscores the importance of the environment in achieving a life of dignity and wellbeing. Additionally, Principle 1 of the Rio Convention, adopted in 1992, draws our attention to the importance of linkages between human rights and the environment when it states that human beings are entitled to a healthy and productive life in harmony with nature.
