This article assesses the contributions of the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) to international human rights law. In particular, it evaluates the degree to which the relationship between the CBD and international human rights law has been clarified since 2014 and why this relationship matters. It also analyzes the legal arguments advanced by those CBD Parties that wish to keep some distance between these two bodies of international law and identifies the opportunities that can be missed in ongoing work under the Convention.
