The HRDD project
The Human Rights Due Diligence Project (HRDD Project) of the Coalition for Human Rights in Development works to advance human rights in development by making sure that governments and development finance institutions adequately assess and address the human rights risks and opportunities associated with development activities. The HRDD Project develops policies, methodologies and tools for human rights due diligence in the context of development finance and engages with civil society, governments and development finance institutions to promote their incorporation within social and environmental management frameworks.
