Rainforests chopped down. Indigenous Peoples driven off their land to export avocados from Mexico. Extreme heat causing death and misery to factory workers and driving farmers off dried, cracked land in Bangladesh. Massive nickel processing plants in Indonesia making pristine water undrinkable and air unbreathable in order to make batteries for electric vehicles. Brad Adams, former Asia director at Human Rights Watch, created Climate Rights International in 2023, and will discuss these and other issues at the intersection of climate change and human rights, as well as provide some ideas about how to solve them.
