What is the problem that the commitment addresses: Public servants with low level of knowledge of human rights. Most of the population that lives in a vulnerable situation are served by Municipalities in a deficient manner and in some rural municipalities, they are in an abandonment situation. This situation is largely due to the lack of knowledge that the municipal governments have of the commitments assumed by the State of Honduras in the field of Human Rights, of the standards in the matter and in a general way of universal planning guidelines with a focused approach in Human Rights. Finally, the private sector is considered the engine of the country, generates employment and income for families through their activities, and in many cases the lack of compliance with the human rights is evidenced. Human Rights that by law and international agreements are to be recognized and respected.
Which is the commitment? Train public servants in human rights, in order to foster a culture of respect for them in State spaces at regional and local level. Design in a joint way with the private sector, an instrument to promote and guarantee human rights in the private sector. Promote the Certification of Municipalities in the implementation of municipal plans and budgets with a human rights-based approach, with a methodology pre-designed that encourages citizen participation and accountability.
How will it contribute to solve the problem?

Accountability; once the business plans and municipalities have been developed, within the framework of its implementation, the scope and achievements in terms of of human rights must be socialized in the community.
Technological innovation; for the dissemination of achievements, compliance and progress of the public policy in the field of law, there will be an installation of a special module on the platform of the public information access portals.
