Capacity Building Trainings of ISER’s Community Advocates on Monitoring, Reporting and Documentation of Business and Human Rights Issues
As part of stakeholder trainings on emerging business and human rights issues, the UCCA conducted trainings of ISER’s Community Advocates on 9th and 10th February in Kayunga, Buikwe and Mukono districts and on 9th to 11th March in Kumi and Namayingo districts. The trainings were conducted at the request of ISER’s Business and Human Rights team to enhance the capacity of their Community Advocates’ knowledge of Business and Human Rights in addition to monitoring, reporting and documenting the same. The ISERS’s Business and Human Rights Program is meant to address issues of its nature that arise out of communities in which the community Advocates operate. The trainings were thus aimed at ensuring that the Community Advocates produce quality and clear reports of Business and Human Rights issues affecting their communities for the intervention of ISERs’ Business and Human Rights Program.
The trainings created platforms for the community advocates to give feedback on the some of the challenges they have encountered with motoring, reporting and documenting business and Human rights issues.
