Deployment of Human Rights Advisers to UN country teams was one of the key commitments and contributions of OHCHR to UN agencies’ work at country level under the Action 2 interagency plan of action adopted in 2003 to strengthen the capacity of UN country teams and national human rights protection systems. Accordingly, the Action 2 Global Programme (2004-2009) was set up to support the implementation of the interagency plan, which provided catalytic support to UN country teams by deploying Human Rights Advisers at the request of Resident Coordinators. A total of 10 HRAs were deployed with the initial funding of Action 2, supplemented by co-funding by the requesting UN country teams and/or OHCHR.
