UNDP-OHCHR Toolkit for Collaboration with National Human Rights Institutions

16 Feb 2012

The overall goal of the Toolkit is to provide concrete tools to help UNCT staff working with NHRIs. The focus is on tools that foster: a good understanding of what an NHRI is; knowledge about what works in terms of capacity development and assessment tools; sound methodological approaches and ideas for training NHRI staff; capacity development for UNCTs themselves; tested and useful policy and budget monitoring tools, to support UNCTs in their work; effective strategies to harness stronger collaboration between NHRIs, government, Parliament, judiciary and civil society; and effective practices, procedures and resources, espe¬cially within the UN, when responding to requests for assistance regarding NHRIs during these phases.
