New tools in the field of National Action Plans on business & human rights

Author: Danish Institute for Human Rights

The Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR) is proud to introduce a new website mapping National Action Plans (NAPs) on business and human rights globally. At the same time DIHR launches a 2017 edition of the Toolkit on NAPs on Business and Human Rights, produced in collaboration with the International Corporate Accountability Roundtable (ICAR). The website and 2017 edition Toolkit are the latest two initiatives within DIHR’s work on National Action Plans on business and human rights. NAPs promote country-level, multi-stakeholder implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Human Rights and Business (UNGPs) and other relevant sustainable development and human rights frameworks... The website, globalnaps.org, collates information from 1) countries that already have NAPs, 2) countries with an official commitment to development a NAP, and 3) countries where non-state actors have taken efforts to start a NAP development process. Individual NAPs are then broken down to demonstrate how they address each UN Guiding Principle on Business and Human Rights, and a wide range of human rights issues such as extractives, gender, and judicial remedy.
