Resumo :

While an accurate inventory has been made of why climate change is a human rights crisis, culture and cultural rights dimensions have too often been neglected by climate and human rights experts, on the one hand, and cultural experts, on the other. This is a shortcoming that needs to be addressed. The negative effects of climate change on human cultures and on the enjoyment by all of internationally recognized cultural rights, as well as the positive effects that our cultures and the exercise of our cultural rights can have as essential tools for responding to the climate emergency, must be at the heart of international priorities and be studied in more detail.
