HUMAN RIGHTS REPORT 2019
The UN Human Rights report 2019 presents the progress achieved in 2019 against the targets set out in the OHCHR Management Plan 2018-2021 and includes an overview of management, funding and expenditure as well as detailed results from the field and headquarters.
As you will find in these pages, 2019 was a year marked by important developments worldwide, supported by our headquarters and 84 field presences across the world. This Report highlights how human rights-based action achieves tangible results, though the gap between increasing demands and available funding keeps growing.
Even as we recognize, with pride, the value and impact of the work we have accomplished through our partnerships, I am cognizant of the need for strengthened efforts. Today’s multiple predicaments are sobering on many fronts – I look forward to distilling lessons learned, building on good practice and, together, leveraging a united voice for human rights for all.
