    Right to Food and the Rights of Peasants in the Context of COVID-19 and Other Crisis
    The COVID-19 pandemic and the climate crisis are critical disasters that are interconnected and threaten humanity today. Although the United Nations Food Systems Summit is scheduled to be held in the fall of 2021 against the backdrop of a global food crisis of an unprecedented scale brought on by disasters and directly affecting the natural world and human life, there are doubts about whether a farmer and citizen-led solution will be developed by securing the right to food and farmers’ rights. In Korea, where the grain self-sufficiency rate is only 22%, securing the rights of farmers for the stable production of food is a basic prerequisite for securing citizens’ right to food, especially for the food-vulnerable class.

    Through this session, we hope to examine food and agriculture from the perspective of global food rights and farmers’ rights, and that based on this, the right to food and the rights of farmers will be discussed more closely under the broader subject of human rights.

    Rights of the Elderly in Times of Crisis
    The Framework Act on the Management of Disasters and Safety (Disaster Support Act) affirms the basic obligations of the state and local governments to prevent disasters, minimize damage from disasters, and ensure that citizens may live in a society safe from disasters, by preferentially addressing safety when all citizens, the state and local governments perform any conduct relating to the safety of lives and physical safety of citizens and to the protection of their property. According to the Act, “vulnerable groups in safety affairs” means persons vulnerable to disasters, such as children, older persons, and persons with disabilities. In other words, it refers to groups of people with high vulnerability to disasters but with low disaster-management ability.
    In modern society, not only natural disasters but also social accidents from fires, explosions, various types of accidents, and infectious diseases, are increasing, and the damage caused is bound to have a more serious impact on vulnerable groups. In the case of COVID-19, which has swept the world over the past year, older persons are more vulnerable. The elderly account for more than 90 percent of COVID-19 deaths, and the difficulty of care, social discrimination, and hatred due to the prolonged pandemic is also intensifying. In this regard, the session focusing on the elderly will examine the status of disasters and human rights violations including information inequality; share practices and efforts of various human rights cities and human rights organizations around the world; and discuss how to cooperate to establish a human rights-based support system for older people in response to disasters.

    The COVID-19 Pandemic and the Rights of Persons with Disabilities
    In the 2021 World Human Rights Cities Forum’s Disability Session, the main details of the “Rights of Persons with Disabilities and COVID-19”, announced by the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights last year, and its implementation status in major countries will be shared. In addition, we will look at the responses and circumstances of organizations that promote the rights of persons with disabilities in each country. Through this, we review the international principles for guaranteeing the human rights of persons with disabilities suggested during pandemics such as the current COVID-19 outbreak, and specific activities needed to realize them.

    In addition, we will examine the real problems faced by the persons with disabilities in Korea during infectious disease epidemics from MERS to COVID-19. From Cheongdo’s Daenam Hospital to Sinaewon, issues regarding cluster infections in facilities for the persons with disabilities and regional support for the persons with disabilities, as exposed in the Daegu area, and future tasks for Gwangju City and each local government will be identified.

    Based on the above discussion, the 2021 World Human Rights Cities Forum’s Disability Session will look closely at whether there are any issues to be remedied or supplemented in Gwangju City's COVID-19-related support plans for the persons with disabilities. Through this, we aim to derive actionable tasks such as measures to support the persons with disabilities within Gwangju City and the development of response manuals.

    Providing opportunities to motivate participants by informing the role and significance of international organizations through sharing UNESCO's work and vision
    History has never before been witness to the upliftment of youth voices as it has been in our present society. Over the recent years, the powerful messages advocated by Malala Yousafzai, Greta Thunberg and the young activists of the March for Our Lives movement, among many others, have left resounding echoes in the international community’s consciousness, and filling the void of what otherwise used to be the space for adults. The strong messages brought to fore by these young women and men have been widely referred to in public opinion, paving the way to creating youth spaces and making its way into the debates in the public sphere. This dialogue session on youth engagement will tackle the evolution of youth as changemakers in the global scene. It will delve into how at the individual and community levels, young women and men of today could make positive social change.

    Reviewing the Research and Options for the Development of APCAD Inclusive City Markers
    APCAD in partnership with Gwangju International Center is developing a concept to establish a Social Inclusion / Human Rights Marker System. This System will enable cities to understand their strengths and weaknesses in relation to human rights and social inclusion, pursue improved policies and practices and receive recognition for the achievements that have been made. The System will be based on existing guidelines and commitments such as the APCAD 10 Point Plan, the Gwangju Guiding Principles for Human Rights Cities and the Sustainable Development Goals.

    This expert meeting will be an opportunity to bring together city and human rights experts to review the research and options for development of the Marker System to help shape the final proposal put to APCAD Members for consideration.

    Exploring the Right to the City from the Perspectives of the Asia Region How to Face Climate Change and Covid-19
    This moment in the global pandemic has further exposed increasingly complex problems in our cities. Urban citizens around the world are struggling with problems that have always been there but have been exacerbated by the pandemic as well the climate change. As cities grapple to recover from the pandemic, there is no better time to reflect and reimagine a more resilient and democratic urban process. Now, more than ever, a strengthened civil society and the role of local authorities is crucial in building a sustainable and just city for all. Thus, the Right to the City framework plays a key role in guiding discussions and developing policies to overcome these complex urban challenges.

    The Right to the City envisions cities and human settlements as common goods that should be shared and benefit all members of the community. It has been an alternative and fruitful framework to some of the most pressing challenges of our time: social injustice, inequality, spatial segregation, discrimination, and environmental degradation, among others.

    The World Human Rights Cities Forum (WHRCF) during the last 3years has consistently created a space to promote the dialogue between the concept of the right to the city and human rights in the cities in the perspective to building a common agenda to face the challenges in the cities in the moment regarding the climate change and the Pandemic COVID and how cities and local governments could use it towards a more sustainable and just society in the Global Perspective and in the Asian Region in special.
