The International consultant, expert on Human Rights monitoring and assessment, David Jonson drafted recommendations on relevant system for monitoring the implementation of the National Action Plan for the Protection of Human Rights in Georgia and ongoing activities”. He is also the author of Guidelines on “monitoring, evaluation of and reporting on the National Action Plan for the Protection of Human Rights in Georgia”
The report containing recommendations and the guidelines pay considerable attention to the logical framework of the Human Rights Action Plan and its individual components. To the expert’s opinion, the aims should be S.M.A.R.T. – specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-bound. As for the activities, they should be aimed at achieving the objectives and therefore, should promote achievement of the goal. The expert stresses the importance of Human Rights-Based Approach (HRBA) and selection of right and relevant indicators while drafting the Human Rights Action Plan. According to his recommendation, two types of indicators should be used: a) implementation/impact indicators, which are more related to the objectives; b) result indicators, which are more related to the activities. The expert also provided the logical framework template for the Action Plan.
The documents have been elaborated within the framework of the joint program of the EU and UNDP “Human Rights for All”.
