About this session
This UN Forum session is framed around the UN Working Group on Business and Human Rights’ (UNWG) new UNGPs 10+ Roadmap for the Next Decade, with recommendations on how to scale up implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs).

The session will feature:
  • A brief overview of the Roadmap’s action areas and priority goals.
  • Perspectives from business, civil society, indigenous peoples, and trade union representatives on how to realize the recommendations and a decade of UNGPs action.

As the UNGPs turned 10 in June 2021, the UN Working Group on Business and Human Rights, as part of its mandate to promote the UNGPs, took stock of the first decade of implementation. The stocktaking highlighted that the UNGPs have led to significant progress by providing a common framework for all stakeholders in managing business-related human rights risks and impacts, but that considerable implementation and coherence challenges remain. As follow-on from the stocktaking, the Working Group developed its UNGPs 10+ Roadmap for the Next Decade with forward-looking recommendations for the next ten years. Building on the stocktaking’s analysis of achievements to date and existing challenges and opportunities, it sets out key action areas for the road ahead for progressively getting closer to fuller UNGPs realization. Each action area identifies priority goals and supporting actions to be taken by States and businesses as well as others that play a role in realizing UNGPs implementation.
