Strengthening Human Rights and Rule of Law in Environmental Public Administration: Focusing on the Mining Sector

23 Jun 2016

A Joint Swedish EPA and UNDP Programme 2014 - 2018

This four-year Sida-funded programme responds to the challenges many developing countries face in implementing environmental policies and integrating environmental and social concerns into broader sustainable development policy making.

The programme will strengthen the environmental, gender, human rights and rule of law dimensions of public administration work in large-scale mining sectors. Working in collaboration with ministries of environment, mining, planning and finance, as well as other public and private stakeholders, the programme provides targeted support to four countries: Colombia, Kenya, Mongolia, and Mozambique.

The programme will also work at the global and regional level to strengthen south-south knowledge sharing and innovative policy approaches. It draws on the combined governance, social, environmental and extractive sector expertise of the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, SEPA, the United Nations Development Programme, UNDP, and partners.
