The Nairobi Process: A Pact for Responsible Business
IHRB’s Nairobi Process is an initiative developed in collaboration with the Kenya National Commission on Human Rights. The Nairobi Process engages businesses, government and civil society to collaboratively address key areas of human rights concern in the East African extractive sector and aims to embed human rights due diligence and accountability through application of international and regional standards.
This approach has developed into quarterly Extractives Sector Forums bringing together businesses and civil society to deliberate on identified human rights concerns. It involves consistent policy and legal analysis of the evolving legal and regulatory framework to engage the Government in strengthening the integration of international and regional human rights standards. Our work also incorporates capacity building of East Africa national human rights institutions and civil society organisations to better engage businesses and governments in achieving corporate accountability.
Kenya’s natural resource extraction should be about shared prosperity.
