Over several decades in Asia, pro-growth economic policies have encouraged a rapid influx of foreign investment and increased international trade flows. In turn, these forces have driven significant gains in jobs, industrial production, and innovation, as well as achievements in health care provision and education. Yet, fast-paced economic development has also resulted in a wide variety of human rights abuses and devastating levels of environmental degradation. Concern for these adverse impacts seems to be growing among governments, businesses, consumers, and civil society in general.
A decade has passed since the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) were endorsed by the UN Human Rights Council. Today, the UNGPs are the main reference framework for the complementary duty of States to protect human rights and responsibility of business enterprises to respect human rights. Although there seems to be increasing global awareness and uptake of the UNGPs, knowledge and implementation gaps remain.
UNDP’s regional project on Business and Human Rights, titled “Business and Human Rights in Asia: Promoting Responsible Business Practices through Regional Partnerships”, (B+HR Asia) works to ensure the uptake of BHR and the implementation of the UNGPs through technical advisory, awareness-raising, communications outreach and capacity building support to governments, businesses, civil society organizations (CSOs), and national human rights institutions (NHRIs).
Duties and Responsibilities
The B+HR Asia programme in India intends to produce focussed knowledge and communication products to enhance understanding of UNGPs, highlight trade and human rights nexus and facilitate outreach on policy issues in India and Asia.
Under the direct supervision of the Business and Human Rights National Specialist at UNDP India, and overall supervision of Head, Inclusive Growth Unit, UNDP India, the Communications Consultant will assist in implementing specific activities related to the communication strategy of the B+HR Asia: Enabling Sustainable Economic Growth through the Protect, Respect and Remedy Framework project in India including:
