Regional Asia Pacific Programme on Human Rights and Sustainable Development (RAPP 1)

RAPP 1 aimed to contribute to a just, inclusive, and sustainable development in the region through mutually reinforcing protection of human rights, gender equality and the environment. Central to this endeavour were the intertwined principles of human rights, gender equality, and environmental protection, viewed both as means and ends to this overarching objective. 

The programme focuses on problems in four specific areas: (1) Climate Change and Human Mobility; (2) Human Rights and Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); (3) Human Rights and the Environment; and (4) Business and Human Rights. These areas are highly relevant in the region and present significant opportunities for the programme to make a meaningful contribution locally, nationally, regionally, and globally.  

Over the course of its implementation from 2017-2024, the programme played a pivotal role in convening stakeholders from various sectors and backgrounds, fostering cross-institutional and cross-border learning, and nurturing numerous collaborations and potential partnerships. Notably, it facilitated the dissemination of knowledge and the application of human rights-based approaches to environmental protection and climate change policies, thereby enhancing regional engagement on critical issues such as just transitions. 

Through a range of activities including trainings, workshops, digital campaigns, and regional and global conferences, the program reached a diverse array of stakeholders spanning academia, government officials, non-governmental organizations, the private sector, the media, and judicial officials. In total, 4,093 individuals from 39 countries benefited from these initiatives, contributing to a more informed, connected, and empowered regional community committed to advancing human rights, gender equality, and environmental sustainability. 

These achievements in RAPP 1 serve as the springboard for the subsequent phase of RWI’s programme in Asia and the Pacific, titled Regional Asia Pacific Programme: Advancing Just Transitions to Climate Resilient and Nature-Positive Societies (RAPP 2).
