The regional offices of the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), UN Environment Programme (UNEP), and UN Human Rights (OHCHR) jointly launched an initiative to develop regional guidance in South-East Asia for promoting and protecting children’s rights to a healthy environment. The purpose is to identify, clarify, and consolidate policy guidance which governments, civil society, businesses, and children in Member States of The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) can use to advance efforts to incorporate children’s rights to a healthy environment in policies, legal frameworks, and operational guidelines to strengthen awareness of, and further reinforce the political will to protect, children’s rights to a healthy environment.
UNICEF, UNEP, and OHCHR request inputs from ASEAN Member States and ASEAN inter-governmental entities, national human rights institutions, civil society actors, humanitarian and development organizations, business representatives, and other stakeholders in the ASEAN region to contribute to finalizing the guiding principles and providing input for guidance on implementing the principles.
Can you please kindly circulate this call for inputs amongst your networks.
