Consultant.e evaluation conjointe avec sur le statut de l’operationnalisation de la Declaration de Marrakech

Le projet met l’accent sur la promotion du droit à défendre les droits humains en vue d’élargir l’espace civique des défenseur.e.s des droits humains. La nécessité d’évaluer l’opérationnalisation de la Déclaration de Marrakech conjointement avec la CNDH à travers toute la RDC est d’une importance capitale. En effet, la Déclaration de Marrakech de 2018 vise à «Élargir l’espace civique et promouvoir et protéger les défenseurs des droits de l’homme, avec un accent particulier sur les femmes et circonscrire le rôle des institutions nationales des droits humains», telle que la CNDH en RDC.
