Informe: Hablamos en serio: la protección de los derechos de la mujer en las cadenas de suministro mundiales

Identifying, addressing and holding companies to account for the impacts of their activities on women needs to be embedded in due diligence legislation and wider business and human rights policies and strategies, or we risk adopting measures that will leave women behind. ActionAid's paper explains why such an approach is needed, and how states and companies can integrate gender-responsive human rights due diligence into existing and emerging efforts in the area of business and human rights, from garment factories in Bangladesh to mining projects in Nicaragua and Zambia, to agricultural investments in Guinea Bissau, Guatemala and Malawi.

Informe y nota informativa: ¡Suficiente es suficiente! Compromiso de tolerancia cero frente a los ataques contra los defensores de derechos humanos y del medio ambiente.

Environmental and human rights defenders face significant and growing risks, experiencing violence, intimidation and criminalisation as a result of their efforts. This research critically assesses the various initiatives, led by states, intergovernmental bodies, the private sector and development finance institutions that seek to protect environmental and human rights defenders. It highlights the limitations of these initiatives, and argues that the knowledge, experiences and priorities of the defenders themselves have not been adequately included in the design of protection mechanisms and approaches.

Informe: Empresas y los defensores de derechos humanos en Colombia

La economía de Colombia está dominada por industrias de uso intensivo de la tierra cuyas operaciones a menudo traen consigo riesgos importantes para los derechos humanos. Esto hace el que el trabajo de los defensores de los derechos humanos y de la sociedad civil sea fundamental para traer la prosperidad, libertad y sostenibilidad compartidas.

Los defensores que buscan prevenir o exponer los abusos por parte de las empresas se enfrentan a ataques concertados y a veces mortales. En el presente informe se examina la relación entre las empresas y los ataques contra los defensores de los derechos humanos en Colombia entre 2015 y 2019. Colombia es el segundo país más peligroso del mundo en términos de los ataques contra los/as defensores/as de derechos humanos que exponen el impacto de las actividades empresariales,  y representa el 9% de todos los ataques ocurridos en el mundo entero durante este período.

Documento final: Defendiendo a los defensores

Human rights defenders are dying, attacked and criminalized all over the world. This is happening at an increasingly alarming rate. In 2017, over 400 people were killed while protecting their community’s land or natural resources. Approximately half of these were indigenous peoples. The conference aimed to understand why in particular and increasingly indigenous peoples from developing countries are being killed or persecuted. The conference examined the key drivers behind this global phenomenon and discussed context-specific cases, and what can be done to change the current situation.

Accountability Framework Initiative: Delivering on ethical supply chain commitments

The Accountability Framework provides a common roadmap for setting, implementing, and monitoring ethical supply chain commitments in agriculture and forestry. These norms reflect the consensus of a diverse coalition of respected conservation and human rights NGOs from around the world. They were developed in close consultation with the private sector and other key stakeholders to establish a harmonised global reference that is applicable across commodities and regions.

Carta abierta: Los defensores de DDHH son la piedra angular del desarrollo sostenible

Human Rights Defenders face greater risk of retaliation and violence than ever before, especially those working in defence of land, environmental and indigenous peoples’ rights. While development interventions can be a powerful tool for the realisation of human rights, too often activities undertaken in the name of development fail to adequately consider human rights conditions and impacts, and end up exacerbating the risks for defenders.
