RECORDING: You can access the webinar here.

Human rights are a key dimension of sustainable development, as highlighted by the recently adopted 2030 Sustainable Development Goals. Given its scale within the overall economy, public procurement has a big role to play in promoting production and service delivery that respect the human rights of workers, service users, and communities.

The webinar on “Human Rights and Sustainable Procurement: Emerging good practices and lessons learned” was hosted by the United Nations Environment Programme Division of Technology, Industry and Economics, Cities and Lifestyles Unit, this webinar is co-organized with ICLEI and the International Learning Lab on Public Procurement and Human Rights.

The objective of the webinar was to highlight human rights as material risks affecting public supply chains for goods such as electronics, apparel, food, and services such as healthcare and security and identify emerging good practices and lessons learned from recent practitioner experiences of integrating human rights safeguards.
