Support to Norwegian People's Aid on Rights-Based Approaches

Since the official adoption of a Rights-Based Approach (RBA), Norwegian People's Aid (NPA) has engaged in discussions on how the approach can best be operationalised. As Overseas Development Institute research on RBAs suggests, a major challenge for organisations is how to move from a policy statement to practice. This requires developing a consistent understanding of the approach across an organisation, identifying what needs to change and what can be built upon, including how to combine service delivery and a RBA, and developing a communication strategy and tools to put the approach into practice.

ODI synthesised findings on the adoption of RBAs by international non-governmental organisations (INGOs) in order to better inform NPA's approach.
