GANHRI publishes second report on ‘Protecting and enlarging the space for public debates and participation of all civil society actors for the implementation of the SDGs and human rights’

July 2017 - On the occasion of this year’s High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development (HLPF), taking place in New York from 10 – 19 July, GANHRI has published its second background paper to draw attention to the changing operating environments for National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) and civil society in the context of sustainable development. The report highlights the crucial role NHRIs and civil society play for the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It presents key ingredients for an ‘enabling environment’ essential for NHRIs and civil society to fulfil their role and outlines current trends with regard to their operating environments and level of participation in the 2030 Agenda and SDG-process.

To inform the report, GANHRI conducted a survey among those NHRIs, whose countries volunteered to be reviewed o their progress on SDG implementation during this year’s HLPF, including Argentina, Bangladesh, Costa Rica, Denmark, Honduras, India, Indonesia, Kenya, Luxembourg, Portugal and Qatar.

GANHRI will continue to report about the general development concerning the space of civil society actors and NHRIs, and also about positive and negative trends in their participation in the implementation and follow-up on the SDGs at the national level.
