Human Rights and the SDGs: Pursuing Synergies
Who’s behind it? – The Danish Institute for Human Rights & the Universal Rights Group (2017)
How can it help? – This report by the Danish Institute for Human Rights and the Universal Rights Group provides a summary of an open-ended meeting held on June 29, 2017 in Satigny, Switzerland, which considered how to leverage the interdependent and mutually reinforcing nature of human rights and sustainable development. Demonstrating that 90% of the SDG targets are embedded in human rights treaties, the report ‘unpacks’ the issues related to the convergence of human rights and the SDGs agendas, in order to contribute to the realization of both agendas in a integrated and mutually reinforcing manner.
