Jamaa Resource Initiatives calls on you to engage actively and constructively in the activities of the UN Intergovernmental Working Group (IGWG) that has been established to construct a treaty to address corporate related human rights abuses. This IGWG was formed by UN Human Rights Council Resolution 26/9, which passed at the Council in June 2014. The second meeting of the IGWG will take place in Geneva, in October 2016. Joining this meeting and engaging constructively would demonstrate your leadership and commitment to the advance of the international human rights framework, while ensuring sustainable development and the presence of responsible investment in your country. Jamaa Resource Initiatives is committed to ensuring corporations do not engage in conduct that violates human rights and the environment and, in cases where they do, they are held accountable for their behaviour.
