Climate Justice Day

Today marks Climate Justice Day at COP23. It is a special celebration in the spirit of listening and learning that is being encouraged by the COP Presidency. Climate Justice Day provides a space for the engagement of many different constituencies seeking the promotion of people-centred
climate action. It is an opportunity for the social dimensions of climate action to be further
explored while celebrating and enhancing the spirit of cooperation and solidarity that led to
the Paris Agreement.
The Fiji COP Presidency is setting the tone for Climate Justice Day by hosting an event on
integrating human rights in climate action. This aims to inform decision makers at COP on
the need to observe human rights obligations in the context of climate change and to
highlight the human dimension of climate change.
