One of the core functions of the APF focuses on building stronger NHRIs, including through bringing its members together, and building partnerships with others, to tackle some of the most serious and complex human rights challenges facing the region.

The APF have embarked on a project to bring together representatives of inter-governmental mechanisms (IGMs) and NHRIs to build stronger and collaborative partnerships, and specifically the engagement of IGMs in South-East Asia and the Pacific sub-regions to address key human rights issues relating to the environment and climate change (the Project).

The APF will assist NHRIs to share their expertise and contribute to human rights-based policymaking and to establish and entrench a process for regular exchange on human rights issues between NHRIs and IGMs. The overall objective of the Project is to increase engagement of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and Pacific Islands Forum (PIF) on human rights issues, in collaboration with NHRIs.
