The Rights of Indigenous Peoples and Agenda 2030

Leaving No One Behind

To mark the 10th Anniversary of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples [UNDRIP], the DTP and the Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact is holding a capacity building program on the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (in June/July 2017, Thailand).

The Diplomacy Training Program (DTP) and the Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact is calling for applications for this new program which aims to build capacity of Indigenous Peoples advocates in the Asia-Pacific region to use the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) to engage with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development (SDGs).

On the 25th of September 2015, the 193 member countries of the United Nations brought into force the 2030 Agenda – a new set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030.  The SDGs are a new and significant opportunity to bring Indigenous concerns and perspectives in from the margins. The commitment to ‘leave no one behind’ and ‘reach the furthest behind first’ are particularly relevant to Indigenous peoples in the Asia-Pacific region. The SDGs commit national governments,

….  to end poverty and hunger everywhere; to combat inequalities within and among

countries; to build peaceful, just and inclusive societies; to protect human rights and promote gender equality and the empowerment of women and girls; and to ensure the lasting protection of the planet and its natural resources.  

 

The UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) provides the standard to guide SDGs planning, programming, implementation and monitoring to ensure that human rights and Indigenous peoples rights are respected.

This special program aims to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and will build the capacity of Indigenous peoples’ organisations and their representatives to use UNDRIP as they engage with governments and the private sector in SDGs planning and programming.
