This webinar will explore developments on human rights and the environment in Africa and share a new report from the Access Initiative Africa which explores the feasibility, pathways and options for development of an approach to improve the implementation of environmental human rights in Africa. The webinar will look at the possible development of a African regional agreement similar to the Escazu agreement in Latin America and the Caribbean and looking at the possible entry points focus and enabling conditions that are needed. The webinar hopes to raise attention and engagement across the African Continent to discuss the possibility of a broad engaged stakeholder process to discuss the potential of development of a road map to implement and strengthen environmental rights in Africa considering national and regional approaches.  It will discuss how the Escazu Agreement can offer inspiration to African countries.

 

This event will have live interpretation into Spanish and French
