Implementing the Global Programme of Action for the Protection of the Marine Environment from Land-based Activities is in the first place the task of Governments. (...)

The right to a healthy environment is recognized by over 150 UN member states, but it has not been formally recognized at the global level thereby delaying achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, exacerbating inequalities, and creating protection gaps, especially for environmental human rights defenders, children, youth, women, and indigenous peoples who often have been and continue to be agents of change for safeguarding the environment. (...) Rights of present and future generations depend on a healthy environment. The global recognition of the right to a healthy environment will support efforts to leave no one behind, ensure a just transition to an environmentally healthy and socially equitable world and realize human rights for all. We commend the Council’s leadership for bringing the world closer to global recognition and protection of the right to a healthy environment.
