The report also looks to what societies should do to advance human development for everyone. It sets forward policy recommendations at the national level and also looks at ways in which the global development landscape could be made more effective in the fight to leave no one behind and achieve the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

 “OHCHR Management Plan 2014-2017”
The goal for the Plan is to make the most of the resources in implementing the human
rights mandate of the United Nations. The six thematic priorities are: strengthening
international human rights mechanisms; enhancing equality and countering discrimination;
combating impunity and strengthening accountability and the rule of law; integrating human
rights in development and the economic sphere; widening the democratic space; and the
early warning and protection of human rights in situations of conflict, violence and insecurity.
This is the first time that OHCHR has identified a set of thematic priorities for a four year
period. OHCHR also commissioned a review of forecasting studies.
