Prepared internally, no external cost


​Ministers committed to writing a new law for Jersey to indirectly incorporate The United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Childusing a model of ‘due regard’. This is part of the Government’s commitment to ‘put children first’. 

The United Nations Human Rights Committee on the Rights of the Child issued a concept note “General comment on children's rights and the environment with a special focus on climate change”,  This recognises climate change as a key children’s rights issue. Environmental harm negatively affects children’s lives more going forward much more than adults. Biodiversity loss, pollution and climate change are significant contributors to the world experiencing.  

This report analyses the policies within the Carbon Neutral Roadmap and their likely impact on children.
