Working with the UN

There are many opportunities for casualty recorders to influences UN processes and discussions on issues relating to casualty recording. Their investigations and archives can be vital tools for advocacy.

Casualty recorders also have an essential role to play in supporting global reporting on Sustainable Development Goal indicator 16.1.2 – recording deaths in armed conflict.

The documents collected here provide an introduction to how to engage with UN human rights processes, including reporting on SDG indicator 16.1.2. Casualty Recorders Network members are invited to contact ECC’s advocacy team for further advice and guidance. Find out more about our joint advocacy work with CRN members.
