HuRRA Tool and Standards Explanation

The Human Rights Risk Analysis (HuRRA) tool is an online demonstration tool, to show how development finance institution technical staff and clients can effectively analyze the human rights risks related to their projects or programs in order to capture human rights impacts often missed by standard risk analysis or social impact assessment. The HuRRA online tool guides the user through a series of steps to identify relevant human rights risks against a set of human rights-informed standards and modify project design to effectively address these risks.
