Updating the Resource Centre Digital Platform

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre is at a critical point in its development. Our digital platform is home to a wealth of information on business and human rights, but hasn’t had a visual refresh for a number of years.

We will soon be updating the site to improve its usability and better serve the thousands of people that use our site to support their work.

Please take an advance peek at our new look, and let us know what you think!

Thank you,
Alex Guy, Digital Officer

Depuis fin 2019, un virus, le COVID-19 (communément appelé Coronavirus) et identifié pour la première fois à Wuhan en Chine s’est propagé à travers le monde, affectant des centaines de milliers de personnes. Le 11 mars 2020, l’Organisation Mondiale de la Santé (OMS) a declaré qu’il s’agissait d’une pandémie.

Selon l’OMS, le taux de mortalité lié au Coronavirus au niveau mondial est supérieur à 3%. Au-delà des conséquences sanitaires, cette épidémie a un impact sur les conditions de travail. L’Organisation Internationale du Travail estime qu’environ 25 millions d’emplois dans le monde pourraient être perdus à cause du COVID-19.

Nous mettons à jour cette section avec les dernières nouvelles et les conséquences de cette pandémie dans le domaine des entreprises et des droits de l’homme.
