Kenya commits to develop a National Action Plan on business & human rights

Kenya has committed to developing a National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights, a comprehensive strategy for protecting against human rights abuses by companies.  It is one of the first governments in Sub-Saharan Africa to do so.  As part of the NAP process, Kenya has commissioned a National Baseline Assessment and a survey of existing business-related human rights abuses. These will be carried out by the Kenya Human Rights Commission and the Danish Institute for Human Rights, respectively, with the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights playing a key supporting role.
