Past Event: “Protecting Rights, Remediating the Environment: Addressing the Harm from Nuclear Weapons”

Wednesday, June 21, 1:15 pm – 2:45 pm

United Nations HQ – New York Conference Room B

This panel discussion was a side event during the negotiating conference on a nuclear weapons ban treaty. Discussants assessed  the positive obligations in the first draft of the treaty, suggested ways to improve them, and highlighted why such revisions would be particularly important to the prohibition treaty. By promoting the inclusion of strong positive obligations in the new legal instrument prohibiting nuclear weapons, this event helped ensure that the treaty not only builds on previous humanitarian disarmament treaties but it also contributes to the SDGs and the 2030 Agenda.
