NANHRI – TPP Symposium
Event hosted by the Network for African National Human Rights Institutions (NANHRI) and the Tri-Partite Partnership to Support National Human Rights
GANHRI’s strength relies greatly on the solidity of its partnerships. As a convener between NHRIs and United Nations mechanisms, GANHRI has built strong bonds with several organizations over the years to maximize synergies and bring NHRIs’ expertise to develop sound international policies on human rights.
The TPP-NHRIs aims to strengthen NHRIs in their capacity to promote and protect human rights, individually and through their regional and global networks resulting in increased fulfilment of human rights for all people.
UNDP, GANHRI, and OHCHR, having enjoyed a strategic Tripartite Partnership (TPP) since 2011, agreed in October 2016 on a vision for scaling up joint support to national human rights institutions, GANHRI and its four NHRI regional networks.6 Building on this vision, the leadership of the three partners signed a Letter of Intent on 27 February 2017, formalising their commitment to enhance their cooperation in strengthening support to NHRIs at global, regional and national levels.
This includes the following efforts:
The programmatic framework and current workplan is supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
