Implementing the National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights- The pathway to business respect for human rights
About The Book

The approval in February 2021 by Kenyan Cabinet of the National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights (BHR-NAP), culminates an extensive process that began in 2015 following a recommendation made during Kenya’s Universal Period Review by the United Nations Human Rights Council and thus becoming the first African country to initiate and complete the development of a BHR-NAP. 

The Kenyan NAP includes an implementation matrix that sets the stage for the next step, embedding the responsibility of business respect for human rights. In so doing, effort should be made to leave no one behind in the protection against human rights abuses by businesses and to offer remedy where human rights abuses are so occasioned.
