This is a toolkit for those conducting, reviewing, or monitoring a human rights impact assessment (HRIA) to ensure the process is consistent with the norms of the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. The process consists of five iterative phases: planning and scoping, data collection and baseline development, impact analysis, impact mitigation and management, and reporting and evaluation. The document lists 10 key criteria to measure the effectiveness of HRIAs: five dealing with process (such as the nature of the participation process), and five with content (such as the human rights standards used). This toolkit mainly targets businesses and does not have the resource or mining sector as a focus, nor does it specifically address gender issues.
