The Commission for Human Rights and Good Governance is pleased to share the National Baseline Assessment (NBA) Report on Business and Human Rights in Tanzania launched on 9th November, 2017. The NBA provides the current situation of the implementation of the United Nations Guiding Principles (UNGPs) on business and human rights in Tanzania.

 The NBA provides the current situation of the implementation of the United Nations Guiding Principles (UNGPs) on business and human rights in Tanzania. The NBA highlights key national and international human rights laws, policies, regulations, and initiatives and other standards on business and human rights. The NBA report contains key gaps and recommendations on the state duty to protect business related human rights abuses and the , access to remedy by victims of human rights abuses and brief findings from three case studies that represent experience on the ground on the impacts of corporate activities on human rights in the agriculture, mining and tourism sectors. It is hoped that this NBA will be utilized to inform the development of a future National Action Plan (NAP on business and human rights in Tanzania). It will as well be used as a reference to stakeholders-civil society organizations, academicians, government, businesses groups and investors to engage with, add to, and apply in their efforts to address business-related human rights harms.
