The key factors of land degradation in the Republic of Serbia are localized sources of pollution found in 709 locations, reduction of organic matter, erosion that affects 80% of agricultural land, while landslides covering 25-30% of the country’s territory also pose a huge threat
Supported by the UNCT Serbia, OSCE Mission to Serbia, EU Delegation to Serbia, Council of Europe Office in Belgrade, while tackling the most urgent issues and groups in the area of human rights protection, the very rights holders managed the Human Rights Week and present their work, achievements and good practice examples from the perspective of human rights protection.
Countries from South East and Southern Europe will pursue new measures that reduce pollution and benefit people’s health, the environment and economy.
A joint vision agreed on at a ministerial conference ending today will see states incentivize and redirect investment towards non-polluting activities, promote waste prevention and recycling and step-up the monitoring of transboundary pollution, among other measures.
As a part of the Human Rights Week and joint commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, a special event “It is our living environment: share, show that you care and get engaged” was organised by the OSCE Mission to Serbia with the aim to promote stronger public participation in the decision-making process in the area of environmental protection.
The first event celebrating 70 years of the Universal Declaration on Human Rights was marked with the commemoration of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities and discussions about sexual and reproductive health of women with disabilities, decision-making and communication of persons with intellectual disability, inclusive education and other topics represented by persons with disabilities as experienced experts
To honour the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights a week long manifestations will be held from 3 December (International Day of Persons with Disabilities) to 10 December (Human Rights Day)
