Integration of Human Rights into Public Policies
Integrating human rights approach in public policies is one of the prior objectives defined by DIDH in its strategic action plan (2012-2016). The Department launched a cooperation program with the UNDP support on two levels:
- Supporting human rights approach in public policies.
- The enhancement of Morocco’s commitment to the United Nations’ human rights mechanisms.
The 3 years program has three major objectives:
- To ensure the follow up of recommendations issued by the Universal Periodic review and the treaty bodies ;
- To set up and reinforce a national ‘follow up and assessment’systemof human rights approach in public policies;
- To build capacites for the benefits of stakeholders in three regions (the oriental region, Tensift El Haouz and Ouerzazat, Souss- Massa Draa).
The project, with an estimated budget of 595.100 US Dollars, included several actions :
