Vietnam contributes to success of UNHRC session

04/07/2016


Vietnamese officials have actively participated in discussion panels of the 32nd session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), which concluded on July 1st with 34 resolutions approved.
Among the adopted resolutions, Vietnam was the co-author of the resolution on the rights of children and climate change, together with the Philippines and Bangladesh.
The resolution, introduced at the session’s opening ceremony on June 13th by Vice State President Dang Thi Ngoc Thinh, received the ideas and support from numerous nations and organisations during consultation rounds which lasted three weeks.
During the discussion process, Vietnam affirmed that negative consequences of climate change hinder the enjoyment of people’s rights, including the right to live, to receive healthcare, and to develop.
In the country, climate change, especially abnormal floods, drought and saline intrusion, claimed thousands of lives, destroyed a great number of houses, schools, and infrastructure facilities every year. It poses a challenge for food security for not only Vietnam but also many countries importing food from Vietnam.
Based on Vietnam’s responsible ideas, the UNHRC approved the resolution, affirming the international community’s attention to the relationship between children’s rights and climate change.
Besides Vietnam, the Philippines and Bangladesh, nearly 100 countries have registered to sponsor the resolution.
At the 32nd session, Vietnam also co-sponsored five resolutions on youths and human rights, the right to education, the right to food, the right to peace, and international unity.
The next session is scheduled for September in Geneva, Switzerland, marking Vietnam’s completion of its 2014-2016 tenure as an active and responsible UNHRC member./.
