GANHRI, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) have enjoyed a strategic tri-partite partnership since 2011 in support of NHRIs. Each partner brings a specific value proposition and complementary expertise to the partnership bringing additional opportunities to leverage and complement respective mandates, expertise and operations to support NHRIs around the world.

NHRIs are at the core of UNDP and OHCHR Strategic Plans, and during the past years, the GANHRI – UNDP – OHCHR strategic partnership has brought opportunities to support NHRIs around the world, including, inter alia, joint prioritization in planning and activities around building capacity of NHRIs, thematic priorities including business and human rights, NHRIs as early warning mechanisms and under threat and knowledge management for effectiveness. Furthermore, the partnership is manifesting itself at the regional and increasingly at the country level encouraging collaboration to support NHRIs on a demand-driven basis.

This strategic partnership has enabled the UN system to provide more efficient and effective support to NHRIs, which has been recognized by the UN Secretary General and the General Assembly as a good practice on the way the development pillar can work with the human rights pillar and advance efforts toward peace and security.
