MANILA, Philippines – NAGLUNSAD ang Pilipinas ng tracking database na naglalayong tiyakin ang maayos na “information sharing at reporting” ng mga accomplishments at best practices para sa promosyon, proteksyon at katuparan ng human rights sa bansa.

Sinabi ng Presidential Human Rights Committee Secretariat (PHRCS) na ang National Recommendations Tracking Database (PH-NRTD) ng PIlipinas ay inilunsad sa isinagawang worshop sa Clark, Pampanga, mula Pebrero 8 hanggang Pebrero 10.

Ayon sa PHRCS, ang PH-NRTD ang magigng “main repository of information” ng bansa na ibibigay ng lahat ng ahensiya ng pamahalaan para tugunan ang rekumendasyon na nabanggit sa constructive dialogues kasama ang United Nations (UN) human rights mechanisms at UN Human Rights Council sa pamamagitan ng Universal Periodic Review.

Magsisilbi rin ito bilang plataporma para i-assess ang human rights commitments na ginawa ng Executive offices na nakalatag sa 3rd Philippine Human Rights Plan (PHRP) for 2018ā€“2022.

Ang susunod na PHRP ay naakatakdang ipalabas ngayong taon.

“But the database is not merely a data-gathering toolā€¦It also brings to concrete form our seriousness to actively engage and share with the UN and the world our best practices in complying with our human rights obligations by way of relevant laws, policies, programs, projects, and other initiatives,” ayon kayPHRCS Executive Director Severo Catura.

Sinabi pa ni Catura na ang Pilipinas ang pangalawang Asian country, sumunod sa Malaysia ang nagsagawa ng pilot sa paggamit ng human rights tracking database.
