How do I integrate human rights into my development programming? And how do I ensure that current and future partnerships are equitable?

To address these and other questions, CCIC has produced a Guide that provides concrete and practical tools to help organizations integrate a human rights-based approach (HRBA) into their development programming and begin a process to intentionally develop more equitable partnerships – all the while, helping facilitators run participatory workshops to achieve this, and providing a resource manual for participants in the process.

And to let you adapt the materials to your own needs, the Full Guide is available for download in PDF and word format.

Taking inspiration from the Istanbul Principles for CSO Development Effectiveness, and the emphasis that the Principles place on continuous self-evaluation and improvement, the on-line Guide was developed in collaboration with the Coady International Institute and Equitas – The International Human Rights Education Centre.
