Welcome to HuRiLink
The HuriLink WebPortal is an on-line tool which presents the experiences and challenges that practitioners face when striving to link human rights and the Millennium Development Goals in their work.
It is a resource that has been developed by practitioners, for practitioners in response to a growing demand for more guidance and practical experiences in this area. While intended for a UN-wide audience, the webportal will be particularly relevant for development practitioners. Featuring lessons learned, common challenges, tools and resources, strategies and approaches, HuriLink is intended to inspire and support (UN) practitioners linking human rights and the MDGs in practice. The HuriLink Webportal is meant as a dynamic and interactive tool that will be updated regularly in response to your input and feedback.
More about HuriLink and its Features
HurLink stands for linking human rights into development practice. It has been developed by the UNDP Oslo Governance Centre and is the first series of interactive tools developed for practitioners to guide them in better making the links between human rights and development in their work
A Primer: Human Rights and the MDGs- Making the Link has been developed in conjunction with this webportal. It provides a conceptual overview of the links between human rights and the MDGs and explores the key questions that practitioners face in this area. The Primer and webportal have been developed as complementary tools that provide conceptual and practical guidance on linking human rights and the MDGs. Download PDF
