The engagement was geared towards popularizing the training manual and monitoring guidelines in the Northern Region and for those that will be engaged in monitoring businesses with regard compliance to human rights standards. The stakeholders were drawn from Ministries, Departments and Agencies, Civil Society, Businesses and Local Authorities. In his welcome address, The Chairman of HRCSL, Brima A. Sheriff said Business and Human Rights (BHR) has become an emerging global concept and therefore demands a discussion and the need to generate a discussion. In achieving that, the Chairman went on; capacities of those who will be involved in the monitoring of business have to be built so that HRCSL and stakeholders will be well positioned to address human rights challenges related to businesses. The Human Rights Commission’s Business and Human Rights Training Manual and Guidelines were developed in 2015. The manual aims to guide trainers as to the basic information needed for both businesses and the government with regards business and human rights. During the engagement, participants were taken through a course outline on the key issues of business and human rights, a case for human rights and business, an overview of the UN guiding Principles on business and human rights and the role of National Human Rights Institutions on business and human rights.
