Human Rights Report 2020
The UN Human Rights Report 2020 presents the progress achieved in 2020 against the targets set out in the OHCHR Management Plan 2018-2021. It also shows how we addressed the many challenges highlighted and reinforced by the COVID-19 pandemic with respect to human rights. It includes an overview of management, funding, income and expenditure, with detailed results from the field and at headquarters.
I am proud of the speed and efficacy with which we shifted to pandemic operations so that we could continue implementing almost all of our planned work – even in the face of budget restrictions – while also addressing the many new challenges posed by the global pandemic with respect to human rights. This Annual Report outlines a wide variety of examples.
I trust that we can continue to count on your support as we look to the future.
Thank you for standing up for human rights.
