Background

Due to wide inequalities of power and information gaps that commonly exist between communities and companies, decisions affecting communities' lives and rights are too often made without their participation and input.  When companies do bring communities to the table, these processes are mostly top-down, directed and led by the company.

The Community Action Platform aims to support communities and NGOs working with them in the field of business & human rights.  It aims to empower them with information by making existing tools & resources more easily accessible, sharing case studies from around the world to enable peer-learning, and connecting people working on similar issues or sectors through a practitioner directory.
