dc.description.abstract<p>This document presents an outline feasibility study on the Pacific's legal and institutional context and capacities concerning the potential development of a sub-regional instrument on access rights. The first part of this study examines the international frameworks for the access rights elements. The second part analyses the regional mechanisms within the Pacific, and the third part looks at stakeholders in the Pacific and provides recommendations for the future.</p> <p>This study is presented against the recognition that human rights and the environment are intertwined and interconnected. The growing discussion that a safe, clean, healthy and sustainable environment is a precondition to the exercise and enjoyment of human rights led to the United Nations Human Rights Council resolution in October 2021 recognizing the right to a safe, clean, healthy and sustainable environment as a human right.</p> <p>In considering the developing international frameworks, the study also recognizes the work already being done by the Pacific Island Forum (PIF) on sustainable development and climate change in the Pacific.</p>
