To enjoy the rights enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a person needs to live in a safe environment. A clean environment. A healthy environment. Everyone has the right to an adequate standard of living for themselves and their family. Without a healthy sustainable environment, these rights are undermined. We welcome the changes to the text today reflecting this more strongly.
