  • Detailed by Action 2

11
What is a HRBA?
  • Entails consciously and systematically paying
    attention to human rights and rights principles
    in all aspects of programming work

12
Why a HRBA? (1)
  • Integral to the UN should be regarded as an
    essential tool for achieving sustainable
    development outcomes
  • Respecting and promoting human rights is crucial
    for peace, sustainable human development,
    democracy and security
  • These human aspirations and common goals, which
    are the pillars of the UN, are inextricably
    linked and interdependent

13
Why a HRBA? (2)
  • Promoting human rights has been a fundamental
    purpose of the UN since its inception
  • The UN has taken major steps to integrate human
    rights into all aspects of development

14
The purposes of the United Nations are to
achieve international cooperation in solving
international problems of an economic, social,
cultural or humanitarian character, and in
promoting and encouraging respect for human
rights and fundamental freedoms for all without
distinction... Article 1, UN Charter

Action 2 Slide
17
HRBA Fundamental for UNFPA
  • UNFPA committed to advancement of human rights
    since its origins
  • All are entitled to enjoyment of equal rights and
    protection central to UNFPAs way of working
  • Therefore, promotion and protection of human
    rights are fundamental to the work of UNFPA

18
HRBA and ICPD
  • UNFPA believes that implementing a HRBA is
    essential if the promises made at ICPD are to be
    fulfilled
  • ICPD is grounded in a human rights framework
  • ICPD and a HRBA go hand-in-hand

19
UNFPA believes that
  • A culturally sensitive, gender-responsive human
    rights-based approach is simply a practical
    application of its commitment to promoting the
    human rights of individuals
  • A HRBA is essential in order to advance the ICPD
    agenda and achieve the MDGs

20
Key Benefits of a HRBA
  • Promotes realization of human rights, helps
    government partners achieve human rights
    commitments
  • Increases and strengthens participation of local
    community
  • Improves transparency
  • Promotes results
  • Increases accountability
  • Reduces vulnerabilities
  • More likely leads to sustained change as human
    rights-based programmes have greater impact on
    norms and values, structures, policy and practice

21
Are you Already Using a HRBA?
  • Do you
  • identify claims of rights-holders and
    corresponding obligations of duty-bearers as well
    as immediate, underlying and structural causes of
    non-realization of rights
  • consistently assess capacity of rights-holders to
    claim rights and of duty-bearers to fulfil
    obligations in programmes
  • monitor and evaluate outcomes and processes?
  • use recommendations of international human rights
    bodies and mechanisms to inform your programmes
  • systematically implement the key HR principles at
    all stages of programming

22
Conclusion
  • Primary skills upon completing this training are
  • knowing what questions to ask - and when - to
    ensure implementation of a HRBA
  • crafting human rights-based outputs, outcomes and
    indicators
  • advocating for the necessity of HRBA
