Expanding its operational deployment in countries and regions will increase OHCHR’s impact, institutional credibility and trust, and will enhance OHCHR’s relationships and partnerships, including with governments and civil society.

In mid-2005, OHCHR reviewed its field activities through the prism of the Plan of Action. The review allowed OHCHR to identify the most obvious implementation gaps in each of the regions, to target countries for engagement during the 2006-2007 biennium, and to determine the most appropriate type of engagement, including whether field deployments should be in the form of regional offices, country offices, support for peace missions, or the assignment of human rights advisers to United Nations Country Teams.
