Belgium Court Declares Inadequate Climate Policy a Human Rights Violation

BY Andrea Germanos, Common Dreams

SNIPPET:

According to the Guardian: “By not taking all ‘necessary measures’ to prevent the ‘detrimental’ effects of climate change, the court said, Belgian authorities had breached the right to life (article 2) and the right to respect for private and family life (article 8 )” of the European Convention on Human Rights.

The federal government and those of three regions — the Brussels-Capital, the Flemish, and the Walloon regions — had “not behaved as generally prudent and diligent authorities, which constitutes an offense,” reported Agence France-Presse.

In an explanation of the legal action on its website, Klimaatzaak references a 2019 ruling from the Supreme Court of the Netherlands:
Quote
This lawsuit is necessary because temperature records continue to be broken, because flooding is becoming more frequent… but above all because there is no real Belgian climate policy. We’ve seen in the Netherlands that this can be enforced via legal action: the Dutch climate organization Urgenda won a similar case that has led to an ambitious climate law.
