Call for Inputs: The United Nations Wants Your Thoughts on Women, Girls and the Right to a Clean, Healthy and Sustainable Environment

Via: United Nations Office of the High Commissioner

The Special Rapporteur on human rights and the environment, David Boyd, is preparing a report on women, girls and the right to a clean, healthy and sustainable environment, a right recognized in 2021 by UN Human Rights Council Resolution 48/13.

For that purpose, he is seeking inputs on the topic from States, rightsholders, and other stakeholders through responses to the brief questionnaire

Your replies will inform the Special Rapporteur’s analysis and contribute to his report, which will be presented to the Human Rights Council in March 2023.

Please send your responses to the questionnaire in Word format by email to

However, submissions will also be accepted via regular mail at the following address:

UN Special Rapporteur on human rights and the environment
Thematic Engagement, Special Procedures and Right to Development Division
CH-1211 Geneva 10, Switzerland

We kindly request that your submission be concise and limited to a maximum of 5 pages (or 2,000 words) and welcome the inclusion of links to online documents.

Due to a limited capacity for translation, we also request that your inputs be submitted in English, French, or Spanish.

To avoid unnecessary duplication: if you have recently replied to other questionnaires from UN human rights mechanisms (or other international bodies, such as the High-Level Political Forum) with information that would be relevant to this request as well, we welcome your directing us to those replies.

The deadline for submission is 14 October 2022.

All submissions will be made publicly available and posted on the Special Rapporteur’s homepage at the OHCHR website.
