Guiding framework Human rights in biodiversity conservation

The aim of this guiding framework is to present principles that define professional standards and describe our scope of action as regards the realisation of human rights in the context of biodiversity conservation projects. It is primarily aimed at GIZ employees, but will also provide guidance to sub-contractors (consultants and consulting companies) and the recipients of financial contributions. It will guide GIZ employees and third parties in designing and implementing GIZ projects and will assist them in conducting a more focused assessment of the risks to human rights.
