Human Rights Based Approach

BRD has fully The Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA) in it programs, with the objectives to: Strengthen the understanding of rights, i.e., understanding the location, forms, and perpetrators of rights violations; recognising who is vulnerable and assessing degrees of vulnerability, and recognizing existing power imbalances in society. Ensure accountability and transparency by identifying rights-holders (and their entitlements) and corresponding duty-bearers (and their obligations). Build capacities for the realization of rights so that rights-holders can make claims and duty-bearers can meet their obligations. Facilitate the active and meaningful participation of multiple stakeholders, including people who directly benefit from projects through access to development processes and institutions, improved information, legal redress, and other positive strategies; Create a sense of ownership of development processes through strategies of empowerment that focus on rights-holders both directly and through their advocates and civil society organizations. and Encourage the expression of rights through different mediums of communication and interaction with people across regions.
