During Phase 2, data collection and baseline development, the HRIA team goes into the field to conduct research on the human rights enjoyment of workers, community members and other relevant rights-holders. While the scoping phase primarily relies on desktop research and analysis, the data collection phase emphasises fieldwork, interviews and other types of stakeholder engagement. Through gathering primary data and additional secondary data, the assessment team can develop a HRIA baseline which documents the current state of human rights enjoyment. The HRIA baseline helps the HRIA team identify actual impacts and predict future impacts. The selection of human rights indicators to inform the data collection, as well as subsequent impact mitigation and management, should also take place in this phase. The HRIA team should determine both qualitative and quantitative indicators at the structural, process and outcome levels. Sufficient resources need to be allocated to the data collection phase to ensure quality of findings and allow rights-holders to participate at their own pace and on their own terms. It is important that enough time is allocated for this phase to allow for meaningful engagement.
