- Human Rights-Based Development (HRBD)
Human Asia conducts human-rights based development projects
to spread the light of human rights across Asia and the world.
Together with our advocacy activities, we dream of promoting the concept of human rights on
a wider scaleand improving the lives of marginalised communities in Asia.
Using a Human Rights-Based Approach (HRBA), Human Asia seeks to integrate human rights and development to
realise strong and sustainable development programs. Our programs aim for each individual to live their lives
independently and autonomously. We also strive to promote a more encompassing and effective idea of human rights
by implementing HRBA projects alongside our human rights research and advocacy work.
Human Asia actively cooperates with existing local government programs, international organisations, and other
development cooperation programs to maximise each project’s overall efficiency and sustainability.
We implement our HRBA projects in accordance with the following international standards and goals.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights · The UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction
The UN Human Rights Council’s resolution on ‘New and emerging technologies and human rights’ (A/HRC/41/L.14)
Our Development and Cooperation Team carry out a diverse range of HRBA projects:
for human rights development in which the rights of every individual are realised and respected
