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

[PDF] Forgotten in the Scramble for Lamu: A Position Paper in the Case of the Aweer and The Fisherfolk [Kenya]

Author: Kenya Human Rights Commission, Published on: 18 June 2014

It raises concerns on the Project being administered in a manner that will relegate host communities further into the periphery of poverty and invisibility and offers recommendations on how to urgently mitigate against this adverse yet imminent outcome. KHRC hopes that the recommendations of this position will be applied towards ensuring that the LAPSSET Project results in inclusive growth of the Lamu community and sustainable development. To this end, this publication offers recommendations on how the various stakeholders may engage towards achieving the state of respect for human rights and environmental justice in implementing colossal development projects.
