Universal Declaration for Animal Welfare (UDAW)

IFAW campaigning for the Universal Declaration for Animal Welfare

It is shocking to consider that even now there is no global, intergovernmental recognition of the importance of animal welfare legislation. IFAW believes this must change, which is why we support the Universal Declaration on Animal Welfare (UDAW). The adoption of this formal declaration at the UN General Assembly would establish animal welfare on the global political agenda.

The declaration process was originally launched by the World Society for the Protection of Animals (WSPA) in 2000. IFAW is part of the UDAW steering committee and is collaborating with other animal organisations in support of the Declaration.

The Declaration is an important way for governments to express their commitment to protecting animal welfare and is a vital springboard to changes in international and national policies and animal legislation. It would help strengthen enforcement of animal welfare measures and promote humane treatment of animals in every corner of the world.

Kijk om je heen en doe er wat aan! Neem zelf verantwoordelijkheid en geef het goede voorbeeld. Spreek mensen aan om ervoor te zorgen dat dieren goed behandeld worden.

Animals should be treated with the same compassion and respect that we treat people. I cannot imagine life without all animals.

People can speak for themselves Animals can't therefore we, in fact should protect them even better but the law does not protect them at all. This should be changed here an NOW!!!

Een dier is een levendwezen en heeft ook recht op een goed leven. Behandel dieren met respect en liefde. Wie niet van dieren houd, houd ook niet van mensen.

Wij volwassen mensen zijn verantwoordelijk voor alles wat geen stem heeft op deze wereld. Dus laten we samen zorgen dat we wereldwijd regels krijgen in het belang van het dierenwelzijn.
