This issue reports regional and national experiences of HRH observatories on contributing to and influencing HRH policies in order to share the experience on establishing HRH observatories in different countries and regions.

The shape of individual HRH observatories depends on factors such as how, when, where and why they were established, the functions and activities they perform, their resources and funding sources, and on the actors involved in their development and management.
This issue presents an overview of the past and prospective future of the “movement” of HRH observatories. It discusses the conditions for their success, and the challenges they face in pursuing their objective of shaping national, regional, and global HRH agendas.
