Title: UN General Assembly declares access to a clean, healthy and sustainable environment is a universal human right.
The UN General Assembly adopted a resolution on 28 July 2022 and declared that access to a clean, healthy and sustainable environment is a universal human right.
The resolution is based on a similar text adopted last year by the Human Rights Council, calls upon States, international organizations, and business enterprises to scale up efforts to ensure a healthy environment for all.
The UN Secretary-General, António Guterres, welcomed the "historic" decision and said, "The international community has given universal recognition to this right and brought us closer to making it a reality for all".
