This chapter of the Human Rights Based Approach (HRBA) Development Toolkit — a document that aims to help address the role of human rights in development — looks at the full spectrum of the rights invoked by HRBA in relation to development, and fleshes out their concrete implications on the work that development planners undertake.
It also examines how human rights-based approaches to development planning operate in regional and national settings, and maps the multiple factors that affect the implementation of HRBA in development.
It includes diagrams that illustrate the pathway of each particular human right within the developmental infrastructure, with a view to revealing the deep social impacts found at each step of the pathway. The chapter illustrates how rights are not simply abstract principles, but normative mechanisms with profound effects on the way that development is practised on the ground.

This report, published by the International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED), presents a framework for developing programmes to monitor interventions for climate change adaptation. Although it is not meant as a definitive guide, it includes potential indicators for tracking and evaluating the success of programmes, and calls for more work to establish baseline measures.
The first section of the report discusses key issues in evaluating adaptation, and challenges in using adaptation indicators. The second section outlines the framework and proposes indicator categories that can be tailored to specific contexts — such as using climate and monitoring data in programme design, and introducing mechanisms that target poor people vulnerable to the impacts of climate change. It concludes by suggesting the use of the framework for more effective investments in climate-resilient development.

This handbook offers developing countries guidance on how to conduct technology needs assessments systematically to address climate change.
It was prepared by the UN Development Programme (UNDP), in collaboration with the Expert Group on Technology Transfer of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Secretariat and the Climate Technology Initiative.
This updated version of the 2004 handbook provides a more detailed framework for the development and implementation of needs assessments designed to help countries make informed choices on the technologies they can adopt to mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change. In particular, it advises on how to identify, assess and prioritise technologies. It also examines ways to support capacity building and help establish environments to enable technology transfer.
