Abstract
This article empirically examines one of the most important causes of the non-implementation of human rights-based approaches to development (HRBAD): their alleged limited relevance for actors on the ground. The article argues that claims about local relevance can only be made after meaningful consultation with local rights-holders. Consulting local rights-holders in order to ensure responsive planning is not only relevant for HRBADs, but for development interventions more generally. The article presents new material on the Sanitized Villages programme in the Democratic Republic of the Congo to assess whether and how rights-holders are consulted, and identifies four mechanisms that can facilitate meaningful consultation. Cet article examine de maniere empirique l'une des causes les plus importantes de la non-mise en OEuvre des approches du developpement basees sur les droits de l'homme (ADBDH): sa pertinence presumee limitee pour les acteurs sur le terrain. L'article soutient que les affirmations relatives a la pertinence au niveau local ne peuvent etre faites qu'apres une consultation veritable des detenteurs de droits. La consultation des detenteurs de droits locaux afin de veiller a une planification reactive est pertinente non seulement pour les ADBDH, mais aussi pour les interventions de developpement de maniere plus generale. Cet article presente de nouveaux supports relatifs au programme Sanitized Villages (villages assainis) mene en Republique democratique du Congo pour evaluer si et comment les detenteurs de droits sont consultes, et identifie quatre mecanismes qui peuvent faciliter une consultation veritable. El presente articulo examina empiricamente una de las causas mas importantes para no implementar enfoques basados en los derechos humanos para el desarrollo (hrbad por sus siglas en ingles): su supuesta pertinencia limitada en el caso de los actores en el terreno. La autora sostiene que las afirmaciones relativas a la pertinencia local solo pueden formularse tras una cuidadosa consulta realizada a los derechohabientes locales. En aras de asegurar la implementacion de la planeacion flexible, la consulta a esta poblacion reviste importancia para los hrbad y para otras intervenciones de desarrollo en general. Al respecto, el articulo da cuenta de nueva informacion surgida del programa de Aldeas Higienizadas implementado en la Republica Democratica del Congo, que puede ser utilizada para valorar si los derechohabientes son consultados y de que forma lo son, identificando, ademas, cuatro mecanismos que podrian facilitar la realizacion de una consulta significativa.
