Partnering with Indigenous Peoples: Experiences and Practices

by aanationtalk on November 17, 20141085 Views

The publication prepared by the Secretariat of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (SPFII) aims to promote the application of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

It presents good practices that showcase the UN system’s policy and programming work based on partnerships with indigenous peoples. The experiences and practices highlighted can offer useful insights on policy and programming approaches to implement the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and advance the right to self-determination of indigenous peoples.

It is however not an exhaustive inventory of the experiences of the UN system. The case studies and projects profiled demonstrate how partnering with indigenous nations, peoples and communities is integral to the success of UN policies, programmes and projects.

Experiences presented in the publication identify:

  • Entry points for specific interventions that advance the rights of indigenous peoples;
  • Bottlenecks and challenges encountered when addressing vulnerabilities of indigenous peoples;
  • Strategies and key features of an enabling environment for ensuring the full and effective participation of indigenous peoples; and
  • Processes and mechanisms aimed at addressing marginalisation, extreme poverty and other human rights violations experienced by indigenous peoples. 

In terms of institutional learning, it is hoped that the experiences highlighted contribute to the sharpening of programmes, strategies and advocacy efforts to implement, strengthen or scale up activities with indigenous peoples.

The compilation is also oriented towards the sharing of practical knowledge that will underpin efforts of the UN system to reaffirm the spirit, principles and rights enshrined in the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
