OHCHR to Begin Human Rights Monitoring By Bicycle
PDF File Size: 67 KB | Download   
The United Nations Human Rights Office in Nepal has purchased six bicycles to facilitate monitoring of the human rights situation in and around Kathmandu. In addition to being eco-friendly, this will provide human rights officers with a high degree of mobility in all conditions, including times when roads are obstructed due to protests, traffic congestion or natural disasters. The idea to use bicycles came as a result of UN inter agency earthquake simulation exercise conducted earlier this year. The simulation brought to light for members of the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) protection cluster the necessity for human rights monitors to be mobile in times of crisis accompanied by a general collapse of infrastructure.
