HUMAN RIGHTS ANALYSIS OF THE DOHA GATEWAY (UNFCCC 18TH CONFERENCE OF THE PARTIES)

In December 2012, the negotiations under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and the Kyoto Protocol were held in Doha, Qatar.

However, the Parties discussed several rights-related issues that have real impacts on the lives and livelihoods of those most vulnerable to climate change.

It also promotes the full and effective participation of affected individuals and peoples in decision-making processes.
