Private Companies Receive Human Rights Training

Forty private companies from different branches of activity, from all over the country, benefited, on April 17th and 18th, of a training on “Due Diligence in Human Rights”, under the scope of the Programme on the Rule of Law and Human Rights (2022-2026), supported by the Government of Japan.

In a statement made public this Thursday, April 19, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) reported that “the trainings were provided by the organization and delivered by experts in Business and Human Rights, in partnership with the New School of Law, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and the International Labour Organization (ILO) […]. The training sessions brought together companies affiliated to the Confederation of Mozambican Business Associations (CTA) and the Mozambique-Japan Chamber of Commerce and Industry”.

Adopting a participative and interactive methodology, the main objective of the Business and Human Rights trainings was to help companies to identify, prevent, mitigate and report on their impacts on human rights, raising their awareness on the observance of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights throughout the value chain and on the Sustainable Development Agenda.

Speaking during the event, the president of the National Federation of Agricultural Associations of Mozambique (FENAGRI) and member of the CTA Council, Hernâni Mussanhane, argued that the trainings have helped companies master the procedures for conducting human rights due diligence.

“By integrating the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights in their value chain, companies will have other and better opportunities”, said the leader, later highlighting that “we had a good representation in the room. By bringing together small and medium enterprises from all over the country, we create a multiplier effect, since the discussions and learning will be transmitted to other regions of the country, increasing the gains of the training and benefiting other companies”.
