The Human Rights-Based Approach to Development is a conceptual framework for the process of sustainable development that is normatively based on international human rights standards and principles and operationally directed to promoting and protecting human rights. Under the HRBA, the plans, policies and processes of development are anchored in a system of rights and corresponding obligations established by international law, including all civil, cultural, economic, political and social rights, and the right to development. HRBA requires human rights principles (equality and non-discrimination, participation, accountability) to guide UN development cooperation, and focus on capacity development of both ‘duty-bearers’ to meet their obligations and ‘rights-holders’ to claim their rights.
