2) “Leaving No One Behind” - Held in Thailand

Program held in Chiang Mai, Thailand on 21-25 June, 2017.

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

On the 25th of September 2015, the 193 member countries of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda – a new set of Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to be achieved by 2030.   The commitment to ‘leave no one behind’ and ‘reach the furthest behind first’ are particularly relevant to Indigenous peoples. 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.  

This special program celebrates the 10th Anniversary of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and helped 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.
