With the support of ECHO, this webinar - organized in partnership between CBi, OHCHR, ICRC and DCAF - provided an overview of human rights related issues and concerns, but also tools and guidance that the private sector should be aware of when operating in complex emergencies and addressing manmade hazards. In particular, participants were introduced to the relevance and implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, as well as the DCAF-ICRC tools on security and human rights in complex environments. The webinar also feeds into the Connecting Business initiative’s new workstream on complex emergencies.
The webinar recording is available here.
