The latest report from HLRN’s Violation Database (VDB), In Pursuit of Climate Justice, takes a hard look at violations of adequate housing land and other habitat-related human rights in the context of environmental hazards and climate change. Based on VDB entries of cases spanning more than a century, each instance explores the root causes and consequences of loss, cost and damage resulting from human activity.
Taking a human rights approach, this report seeks to identify the scope of impacts and the public, private and/or corporate responsibility for the remedies and reparation to which victims and affected persons are entitled. The collection of cases gives rise to a pattern of 13 causes/contexts for monitors, duty bearers and human rights defenders to consider.
