Proud contributors to a United Nations report on the right to a healthy environment
BGI Legal is proud to have been part of the report on good practices relating to the recognition and implementation of the right to a safe, clean, healthy and sustainable environment provided by Mr. David R. Boyd, the UN Special Rapporteur for Human Rights and the Environment, to the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva on Monday 2 March 2020.
The report involved a global mapping survey to determine which jurisdictions around the world recognize a human right to a healthy environment in their domestic law.
Dr. Boyd concluded that this right is now recognized in law by more than 80 per cent (156 out of 193) of member states.
The contribution by BGI Legal on the constitution and laws of Georgia to this global project was appreciated as significant and invaluable.
