The Committee on the Rights of the Child will dedicate its next General Comment No. 26 to children’s rights and the environment with a special focus on climate change. Read our news piece.
The General Comment will provide authoritative guidance on how children’s rights are impacted by the environmental crisis and what States must do to uphold these rights.
Over the coming months, the Committee will consult with States, experts, interested parties, and especially hundreds of children to produce its General Comment. We encourage you to monitor the Committee’s webpage to stay tuned!
