Assessing Human Rights Impacts

India Project Report February 2014

The pilot project in Kenya paved the way for a second human rights impact assessment which was conducted by Kuoni in india in october 2013. the choice of india, where Kuoni operates through its fully-owned company Kuoni destination management (Kdm) India, was based on Kuoni’s global human rights risk assessment, which assesses all destinations by the criteria of:h the country’s human rights risk level according to publicly-available human rights indices (3)h Kuoni customer volumeh Kuoni’s leverage at the destination (own ground     agents vs. external partners).From the high-risk countries identified, india was chosen for this project mainly because of its comparatively high customer volume and because Kdm india already has an established local cR function. it was therefore considered appropriate to take india as the location in which to conduct a second HRiA and refine the pilot assessment methodology. the same reporting format was used as for the HRiA in Kenya, with some text passages taken from the Kenya report and adapted to the indian context.this report will be used for:h internal awareness-raising and informing about athe further development of Kuoni’s human rights due diligence;h sharing the learning more widely with stakeholders in the tourism industry, society and beyond in order to inform about future human rights-related practices in the tourism sector.
