Human Rights Based Approaches -free resources

Practitioners’ Portal on Human Rights Based Approaches
(UN reported in INEE bi monthly newsletter)

Funded by the Action 2 Interagency programme on Human Rights and implemented by the UNDP Oslo Governance Centre, the Practitioners Portal brings together a wide range of resources on integrating human rights-based approaches (HRBA) into development programming.
During the last decade, the UN and other actors including donors and civil society have accumulated a wide range of knowledge and experience in mainstreaming HRBA into development, which has been consolidated in the Practitioners’ Portal.

The portal focuses on providing strategic and practical tools on integrating HRBA into programming and is designed to complement existing resources on broader human rights issues.  It offers access to:

  • Database of Resources: virtual access to reports, handbooks, guides and case-studies on mainstreaming HRBA into development programming, searchable by topic area, region or programming cycle;
  • Huritalk Corner: experiences, lessons learned and examples of good practice shared by UN members through the Human Rights Policy Network.  Search consolidated replies and e-discussions by topic area, or browse the insights series.
  • Learning Materials: training and learning materials on integrating HRBA into development programming including the UN Common Learning Package on HRBA.

Please note that the site is a work in progress and will be continuously updated and improved.  Any suggestions on improvements are appreciated.  Please direct comments or requests for general information to Sarah Rattray, the HuriTALK facilitator, at
