REPORT OF THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE ON ITS 17TH SESSION : HUMAN RIGHTS COUNCIL, ADVISORY COMMITTEE, 17TH SESSION, 8-12 AUGUST 2016
In its Fifth Assessment Report, published in 2014, the IPPC underlined that
displacement and migration are subject to various complex social, political, cultural,
economic and environmental factors and that due to the presence of the multitude nature of
interacting climatic and non-climatic drivers, it is difficult to demonstrate and assess the
exact causal chains and links between migration and climate change with a specific degree
of confidence. (...) As can be seen from the above definition, the Guiding Principles explicitly include
“natural or human-made disasters as drivers of forced displacement. It is generally agreed
that the inclusion of such phrase is also applicable to climate-induced displacement.
VISIT TO MALAYSIA : REPORT OF THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON EXTREME POVERTY AND HUMAN RIGHTS
Denying the scale of poverty has exacerbated the problem by justifying significant
underinvestment in poverty reduction, stymying research into and analysis of the drivers of
poverty, encouraging a widespread misunderstanding of who is poor and allowing a
fragmented, poorly targeted and inadequately funded social protection system to limp

Centre in developing the Libyan Mine Action Standards.

general conflict and violence and armed group presence were the main drivers of their displacement,
15 per cent mentioned other security-related issues, such as political affiliation, and the remaining 2
per cent stated economic factors. (...) The “Together We Rebuild” community stabilization programme, of IOM, seeks to
address drivers of displacement and instability by restoring services and community infrastructure,
promoting social cohesion and supporting the reintegration of livelihoods.
REPORT OF THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON THE PROMOTION AND PROTECTION OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND FUNDAMENTAL FREEDOMS WHILE COUNTERING TERRORISM, MARTIN SCHEININ : ADDENDUM
resulted in the delivery of children at checkpoints and unattended roadside births, putting at risk
the health of both child and mother, and leading to numerous miscarriages and the death of at
least five mothers.37 These hardships are reported to have contributed to an 8.2 per cent increase
in home deliveries.38 The Special Rapporteur was furthermore troubled to hear of three cases in
April 2007 in which Palestinian ambulance drivers are said to have been harassed and beaten at
checkpoints in the Jenin area.39 If true, not only were the civil rights of those individuals violated,
as was the right to physical and mental health for all, as guaranteed under article 12 (1) of the
International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, but it would also constitute a
violation of international humanitarian law norms, which require that medical personnel be
respected and protected at all times.
41. (...) The Special Rapporteur was very troubled by reports of incidents

LETTER DATED 10 JULY 2019 FROM THE PERMANENT REPRESENTATIVE OF LIECHTENSTEIN TO THE UNITED NATIONS ADDRESSED TO THE SECRETARY-GENERAL
• The international community has also under-diagnosed the role of self-
determination claims as a driver of conflict, which can have negative consequences
for efforts to foster sustainable peace. (...) Participants noted that issues of self-determination have been a driver of
conflict in a number of ongoing situations, particularly in protracted conflicts. (...) The Liechtenstein
Initiative on Self-determination proposes that situating these claims in the language
of self-governance may help to avoid a hardening of positions on either side and
prevent the resulting ‘self-determination conflict’. Focusing on these drivers of
conflict may also make it easier to distinguish between those self-determination
movements driven by the desires of internal groups, and those caused by external
interference, including annexation by another state.

The Report, also, falls short of mentioning the protests of Greek Cypriot taxi
drivers at the border gates in November 2021, who were prevented by the Greek Cypriot
authorities from crossing to the TRNC to buy fuel from our country, as well as the long
withstanding obstacles of the crossing of the Turkish Cypriot commercial vehicles through
the borders, due to the Greek Cypriot policies.
