Title: UNDP and the Human Rights-based Approach to Programming;


1
UNDP and the Human Rights-based Approach to
Programming Enhanced attention to Minorities in
Development
United Nations Development Programme
2
The UN Common Understanding
  • 1. All programmes of development cooperation,
    policies and technical assistance should further
    the realisation of human rights as laid down in
    the UDHR and other international human rights
    instruments.
  • Human rights standards contained in, and
    principles derived from, the UDHR and other
    international human rights instruments guide all
    development cooperation and programming in all
    sectors and all phases of the programming process
    and development cooperation
  • 3. Programmes of development cooperation
    contribute to the development of the capacities
    of duty-bearers to meet their obligations and
    of rights-holders to claim their rights

3
Implications for UN Agencies
  • Agencies need to understand and internalise the
    values and principles of the international bill
    of rights
  • A human rights-sensitive organisational structure
    needs to be developed
  • Internal human rights capacities need to be
    strengthened
  • Organisational human rights policies, directives
    and guidelines need to be developed and adopted
  • Programmes and advocacy strategies must be
    formulated, implemented, monitored and evaluated

Human Rights-based Programme Review Checklist for
UNDP Staff
  • Country Context
  • Excluded and Vulnerable Groups
  • Stakeholder Capacity
  • Programme and Project process (Conduct)
  • Country Programme and Project Outcome (Results)

6
Programme Review Checklist Excluded and
Vulnerable Groups
  • Which groups are the most disadvantaged? How are
    vulnerability and poverty in the country defined?
    How does UNDP define vulnerability and poverty in
    the country?
  • Are tools and indicators to identify excluded
    groups sufficiently disaggregated?
  • How does the overall Country Programme address
    exclusion and disadvantage? How do specific
    projects do so?
  • Does the UNDP Country Office adequately reflect
    the diversity of the country?

7
Minorities in Development
  • One of three areas as identified by UNDP
    colleagues in need of enhanced attention
  • Cooperation with the Minority Rights Group
    International
  • A first draft for UNDP was prepared in September
    2003
  • The Regional HDR on Roma in Central and Eastern
    Europe, The draft prepared by MRG, and the HDR
    2004 on Cultural Liberty in Todays World are
    guiding our next steps.

8
Some of the Recommendations received
  • Initiate study on Minorities and the achievement
    of the MDGs.
  • Mainstream minority rights issues in Early
    Warning Report methodology
  • Capacity Development of UNDP staff to deal with
    minorities and minority rights development of a
    checklist
  • Enhance minority related Poverty Diagnosis (HDI
    for minorities)
  • Build a UNDP internal database on examples of
    best practice in engaging minorities in
    development and governance at all levels

9
Next Steps
  • Learn from other key agencies, notably OSCE,
    research institutions and NGOs.
  • Organise informal consultations on UNDP draft
  • Pilot test assumptions, findings and
    recommendations through practical application
  • Complete UNDP Policy Guidance Note (2005)
