Indian NGO develops monitoring tool for tracking implementation of UPR recommendations

The Working Group on Human Rights in India and the UN (WGHR) recently launched a monitoring tool for tracking implementation of UPR recommendations.

At a panel discussion on status of UPR recommendations in India on 22 August, WGHR presented its new publication which contains a tool designed to effectively enable the monitoring of human rights recommendations made to the Government of India during the latest UPR. This tool includes both an Indian template to assist in the monitoring of UPR recommendations as well as a global one which can be adapted for other countries and be used by organisations aiming at tracking the implementation of recommendations by they Governments.

The publication will facilitate the monitoring of domestic human rights situations and will ensure greater accountability.
