The conference is set to be held from February 21st until the 22nd in Doha in coordination with the Global Alliance of National Human Rights Institutions, the Arab League, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, and the United Nations Development Program.

Moreover, the conference will highlight the many harmful impacts of climate change on human rights, including the right to health, food and clean drinking water, as well as education and development, especially in developing countries with insufficient resources.
The conference will be attended by over 300 representatives from different countries, international organizations and universities who specialize in various related fields, including policy-making, research centres and media agencies.
It will be held both in-person and virtually, hosting several sessions and workshops and will submit a final report at the event's conclusion.
