“The PDH reports that while, in general, it is allocated with adequate funds, it requires additional resources, particularly on departmental level, to effectively fulfil its mandate. 

The SCA emphasizes that, to function effectively, an NHRI must be provided with an appropriate level of funding in order to guarantee its independence and its ability to freely determine its priorities and activities. In particular, adequate funding should, to a reasonable degree, ensure the gradual and progressive realization of the improvement of the NHRI’s operations and the fulfillment of its mandate. 

The SCA encourages the PDH to advocate for the funding necessary to ensure that it can effectively carry out its mandate.”
