This activity report presents a full-day discussion on specific themes related to human rights and climate change, which was held on 6 March 2015 during the 28th session of the Human Rights Council (HRC) pursuant to resolution 26/27. Two panel discussions took place. 

The resolution called for one panel discussion on identifying challenges and ways forward towards the realization of all human rights for all, including the right to development, in particular those in vulnerable situations, as well as the measures and best practices to promote and protect human rights that can be adopted by States in addressing the adverse effects of climate change on the full and effective enjoyment of human rights, and another panel discussion on how climate change has had an adverse impact on States’ efforts to progressively realize the right to food, and policies, lessons learned and good practices.
