"Uganda UPR Factsheet: Business & Human Rights"
On November 03, 2016...Uganda's human rights record will be reviewed during the Universal Periodic Review (UPR)...During the last UPR session in 2011, Uganda did not receive a specific recommendation on business and human rights, but it did receive and accept a recommendation to develop a national action plan on human rights. With the private sector playing an increasingly prominent role in the country’s development, it is crucial that Uganda adopt the laws, policies and action plans needed to effectively operationalize the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.[refers to Newmann Kaffee, McAlester Energy Resources & Guangzhou Dongsong Energy]
