Activity: Talk or presentation typesLecture and oral contribution

The low-lying islands and atolls of the Pacific have been among the first places to experience the most severe impacts of anthropogenic climate change. Some of the affected islands are subnational jurisdictions, made up of people who live remote from the governing majority and yet are extremely vulnerable to national policy decisions, especially when it comes to climate change and its impacts. For
minority populations living in remote subnational jurisdictions, and for whom national policy on climate change arguably compromises their human rights, a communication to the UN Human Rights Committee might be one of few legal options available.
