The Human Rights Reporters Ghana would be officially launched soon. Our volunteers, patrons and the fertile brains behind this human rights focused Non-Governmental Organization that is championing human right education, empowerment and sensitization of critical human rights issues in Ghana.
The NGO aims at championing human rights issues in Ghana towards the attainment of related SDGS.
Human rights offer guidance for the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Likewise, the 2030 Agenda and the SDGs can contribute substantially to the realisation of human rights.
The high degree of convergence between human rights and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development implies that existing human rights mechanisms can directly assess and guide the implementation of the 2030 Agenda and its SDGs. Moreover, drawing on existing human rights mechanisms will ease the reporting burden of states, and enhance coherence, efficiency and accountability.
The reflection of human rights in the 2030 Agenda lends the implementation of the agenda to a human rights-based approach (HRBA) to development and programming. The entitlements and obligations under international human rights law define the roles of rights-holders (individuals and groups to which the rights in question apply) and duty-bearers (state and non-state actors with corresponding obligations to respect, protect and fulfil human rights).
The human rights-based approach stipulates that:
- Development should further the realisation of human rights;
- Human rights standards should guide development cooperation and programming; and
- Development cooperation contributes to the development of capacities of duty-bearers to meet their obligations and of rights-holders to claim their rights.
