UNDP’s Business and Human Right Project funded by the European Union and the Environmental Governance Program (SEPA) organized training on human rights due diligence. The training was attended by 31 participants representing from Mongolian Wool and Cashmere Association, Mongolian Food Industry Association, Women Association of Mineral Sector, and other civil society organizations. Sean, Lees, Business and Human Rights Senior Specialist from the Bangkok Regional Hub, UNDP, spoke on relevance of human rights to businesses and international regulatory trends related to human rights due diligence. UNDP released ‘Human Rights Training Facilitation Guide’ in 2021 which served as the basis for the training that provided the participants with knowledge and tools necessary to identify and assess adverse human impacts and risks of business operations, integrate and act upon them. Developed countries around the world started setting human rights and environmental requirements to businesses and their supply chains. This is one of the reasons why human rights due diligence is becoming important for companies particularly those interested in exporting goods and services from Mongolia. The training participants said that the training was timely and effective.
