The RWI-UN partnership started in 2021 in support of the Surge Initiative at the OHCHR.

The Surge Initiative brings together economists, development specialists and human rights experts from within the UN system. It aims to accelerate the realization of economic and social rights, creating the conditions to build back better, reduce inequalities and contribute to a human rights-based implementation of the 2030 Agenda.
