NAP Development Process
During the 2nd UPR review cycle November 2016, a recommendation to the government of Uganda to adopt a National Action Plan on business and human rights was made. The recommendation was accepted and towards this end, in early November 2017, the Uganda Human Rights Commission (UHRC) organised a colloquium with government for initial discussions on how to move ahead with the implementation of the recommendation. There is support for a NAP from local civil society, academia as well as development partners.
In May 2016, the Ugandan Human Rights Commission (UHRC) and the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR) published a Human Rights and Business Country Guide on Uganda, providing country-specific guidance to help companies or businesses respect human rights and contribute to development.
