This Toolkit explores how public procurement policy makers, buyers & contract managers can implement requirements that suppliers respect human rights.
Read the toolkit here.
In recent years, public procurement has increasingly been recognised as a means for states to fulfil their human rights obligations and as a means of realising sustainable development. Including requirements within public procurement that suppliers respect human rights can help prevent human rights abuses including modern slavery, child labour, human trafficking, and excessive working hours from occurring within state value chains and promote the rights of persons with disabilities, women and children, and economically disadvantaged minorities, for example.
We are publishing this Toolkit in a road-testing version. We would like to hear you on whether this Toolkit can be improved and whether there are more good practice examples we can highlight.
