The Toolkit on National Action Plans for Business and Human Rights
In 2017, the Danish Institute for Human Rights published a toolkit on National Action Plans for Business and Human Rights which builds on the 2014 version with examples and lessons learned from countries that have adopted NAPs. The toolkit provides systematic guidance on how to develop a NAP that is framed by a human rights-based approach promoting participation, non-discrimination, transparency, and accountability.
Among other topics, the 2017 toolkit provides guidance on how to undertake a national baseline assessment, plan an inclusive and participatory NAP process, and establish effective follow-up measures for monitoring, reporting, and evaluating how the NAP is being implemented. Furthermore, each section within the toolkit provides useful and practical examples of best practice from across different country contexts to demonstrate what can be achieved.
