U.N. Expert: Biodiversity Is Essential To Human Rights

An article in the World Post describes the report of the Special Rapporteur on biodiversity and human rights, which he presented to the Human Rights Council earlier this month.  In the article, Professor Knox is quoted as saying:  “Biodiversity is really necessary for the full enjoyment of rights to food, water, health — the right to live a full and happy life.  Without the services that healthy ecosystems provide across the board, we really can’t enjoy a whole range of human rights. And healthy ecosystems really depend on biodiversity.”
