“The CHRAJ reports that funding in respect of its programmes and development has not kept pace with the broad mandate that it has been given and the network of offices spread throughout the country which require a substantial outlay of resources.

The SCA reiterates that to function effectively, a NHRI must be provided with an appropriate level of funding in order to ensure that it has adequate resources, including an appropriate staff complement, to carry out its mandated activities. Where an NHRI has been mandated with additional responsibilities, it must be provided with the adequate funding to effectively fulfil these duties.”
