The Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights
An Implementation Toolkit for Major Project Sites
The Japan Environmental and Social Challenges Fund, in collaboration with one of MIGA's clients, Anvil Mining Ltd., has developed a comprehensive implementation program for the Voluntary Principles on Security and Human Rights (VPSHR) for Anvil's operations in Africa. As part of this project, a toolkit (English, French) was designed to help develop and implement the plan, and is now available to a wider audience. Although the toolkit does not constitute official guidance either from the World Bank Group or the VPSHR secretariat, it is hoped that it will be useful for companies and projects as they develop their own site-level implementation plans tailored to their specific location and needs.
