The government is to finalize the first draft of the National Action Plan for promotion and protection of Human Rights (HR) shortly, the Ministry of Disaster Management and Human Rights said. A combined draft of the National Action Plan was presented to the Minister of Disaster Management and Human Rights yesterday.
This first draft will be circulated among the general public and all relevant stakeholders including political parties for comment. Once public comment has been incorporated, a draft will be presented to Cabinet for approval and adoption.
A monitoring body will be established under the chairmanship of the Minister of Disaster Management and Human Rights, to monitor the implementation of the Action Plan in coordination with the National Action Plan Steering Committee. Regular reports of progress will be made available to the public and also to international bodies such as the UN Human Rights Council.
