Key areas of collaboration will include the promotion of human rights through the
dissemination of information and educational materials and the organisation of joint trainings for, amongst others, government, law enforcement officials and civil society. Both OHCHR and the NHRC will continue to actively engage with civil society in the pursuit of human rights goals and undertake joint activities with civil society partners, particularly human rights defenders, wherever appropriate.
OHCHR will continue to monitor human rights in Nepal as per its mandate, and will follow up cases it has investigated over the past four years, but will refer new complaints of human rights violations to the NHRC. My Office will then meet regularly with the NHRC at regional and national levels to provide technical assistance and advisory services and undertake joint activities on these cases.
