This cross-sectoral Strategy affirms the central role of human rights in German development policy and forms the basis for the implementation of the Federal Government’s Action Plan on Human Rights, 2010 – 2012 in the field of development policy. It sets out the development policy guidelines established by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) for the formulation of Germany’s official development assistance (ODA). It seeks to promote more systematic alignment of German development policy towards human rights, with the aim of providing effective support for partner countries’ efforts to implement these rights.
