The training session introduced participants to the linkages between human rights and the environment; explored key human rights and environment issues in the Pacific islands region, including climate change; reviewed key legal instruments, including international human rights conventions and national constitutions; and, discussed the integration of human rights and environmental issues into the practice of lay magistrates.
