The Climate Action and Human Rights Institute (CAHRI)
The Climate Action and Human Rights Institute (CAHRI) began in the year 2022, a period of post-pandemic recovery which sparked renewed commitments towards mitigating climate change and creating a more sustainable environment. With the onset of extreme weather conditions and its negative impact on people's welfare, the organization sought to develop reports that monitor the consistency and success of climate action worldwide. By providing a human rights perspective on actions related to the environment, the organizations emphasizes the urgency and encompassing nature of climate issues. Through its objective reporting, CAHRI aims to encourage countries to uphold their obligation of protecting the environment as well as the rights of people across the globe in attaining quality of life.
The Climate Action and Human Rights Institute (CAHRI) envisions a world where human rights are protected for all; a global order where human rights are at the center of all decision-making processes; and a future where people and the planet thrive in harmony under a sustainable environment and stable climate system. It is dedicated to empowering individuals and communities to take action for the preservation of our planet for the present and future generations. It believes that education, which empowers individuals and communities to take meaningful action, is key to achieving its vision.
Our mission is the protection of Human Rights, amidst environmental degradation and dangerous climate change. It seeks to attain this by helping develop policies and programs through partnerships and coalitions with duty-bearers and rights-holders, including government, vulnerable sectors and communities, civil society organizations, and international organizations. Its process is participatory and interdisciplinary, rooted in the principles of equity, justice, and genuine regard for human dignity.
