Human Rights and Ethics in the field of Adaptation and Resilience: Building Trust
The event will bring together, and widen access to, a diversity of voices, especially from the Global South to propose an ethical and spiritual perspective, and to inform and share real life perspectives on the human rights implications of climate change with communities seeking to devise and implement adaptation and resilience strategies. It aims to support and encourage faith-based organisations to engage openly with grassroots partners, indigenous communities, youth and women based on respect for human rights, equality and dignity.
