DRAFT NATIONAL ACTION PLAN (NAP) ON BUSINESS AND HUMAN RIGHTS

Background

The United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGP) gives a framework on how government and businesses are to protect and respect human rights, including what mechanisms are to be put in place to reduce, mitigate and redress business-related violations. This Action Plan seeks to operationalise these principles in practical, real and specific terms, exploring how government discharges the Duty to Protect in the context of business and how businesses operationalize the Duty to Respect and more importantly how to ensure Access to Remedy for individuals or communities adversely affected by business operations. It also encourages adoption of effective grievance mechanism by companies to address human rights issues.
