The Handbook on Applying a Human-Rights Based Approach to Development and Humanitarian Programming responds to the increasing calls for a comprehensive integration of human rights in People in Need's Relief and Development Department and from the global aid community. The Handbook aims to guide RDD's programmes, their senior and regional management, as well as fundraising specialists, through the concept of HRBA. It includes real-life examples and draws inspiration from a variety of sources published online by UN agencies, international organizations, donors, and international non-government organizations (INGOs). It echoes policies and commitments within PIN, including those of Gender Equality and Social Inclusion, Core Humanitarian Standards, and Inclusive governance.
