About the Partnership
The TriPartite Partnership to Support National Human Rights Institutions (TPP) is enjoyed by the United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), the Global Alliance of National Human Rights Institutions (GANHRI), and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). Formed in 2011, the TPP is a mechanism to mobilize and leverage the various mandates of the partners to support strategically NHRIs, their representative Regional Networks, and the global body of NHRIs.
The annual meeting of the TPP aims to foster closer collaboration between the UN system and national human rights institutions (NHRIs), their regional networks, and GANHRI.
By promoting an exchange of information, knowledge, good practices, challenges, and crystallizing capacity needs through a virtual dialogue, the TPP partners and broader stakeholders in the UN system will set joint and complementary priorities for engagement and support to NHRIs over the forthcoming year.
The 2021 TPP Annual Review and Partnership Platform meeting (TPP 2021) provides an opportunity for:
NHRIs to directly interact with the UN system, be apprised of key developments in the UN in relation to their work and provide important country, regional, and global level experiences and knowledge to UN partners from across the system;
The UN system and NHRIs to discuss key development and human rights challenges facing NHRIs and prioritize areas of joint work for the forthcoming year
Awareness raising and knowledge exchange on the important contributions of NHRIs in advancing human rights, development, and peace and security.
The TPP 2021 welcomes broad participation and engagement across all sectors in its public session National Human Rights Institutions on the front lines of the UN Call to Action for Human Rights – Climate Action and the Right to a Healthy Environment.
The event took place online on Oct 6, 2021 from 08:00 – 09:15 AM EST.
