From Queensland reports website "In this recent Keynote address at the Institute of International and European Affairs in Dublin, Lord Carnwath examined the historical development of principles of environmental protection in European and international human rights law. Early in the address he posed the question ?whether human rights law can make a significant contribution to addressing the immense challenges we face in protecting the environment, or is it just chipping away at the edges?? His comments throughout the speech carry much relevance, particularly in the current climate of Anti-Adani protests, since he helped advise on the text of the Global Pact for the Environment presented by President of the French Republic Emmanuel Macron to the United Nations General Assembly in 2017, and is a regular campaigner on environmental and climate issues".
