Indigenous peoples

Across the globe, Indigenous peoples manage significant areas of Earth鈥檚 most biodiverse regions as a core expression and part of their cultural identity and spiritual practices. The profound relationships they have with the whole of the natural world are a hallmark of their worldviews, values and way of life 鈥 and contribute to their effective sustainable conservation of lands, territories, seas and natural resources.

This close relationship to their environments means that Indigenous peoples are often the first and most severely affected by environmental degradation. Furthermore, insecure tenure rights over their lands and territories, as well as exclusion from environmental decision making, often constrain the contributions of Indigenous peoples to conservation and exacerbate their socio-economic vulnerabilities聽and marginalisation.

Indigenous peoples and 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料

澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 has a long history of working with Indigenous peoples both to promote recognition of their rights at policy level and to support their conservation activities on the ground. 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 endorsed the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) in 2008 and regularly monitors and reports on its contributions to the implementation of the Declaration. 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 Resolutions and field-based work emphasise Indigenous peoples' rights to the lands, territories and natural resources they have traditionally owned, occupied and used, and the need to ensure the full and effective participation of Indigenous peoples in all conservation initiatives and policy developments that affect them.

Together, the 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 Human Rights in Conservation Team (HRCT) and the Commission on Environmental, Social and Economic Policy (CEESP) support 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 in advancing Indigenous peoples self-determined priorities throughout policy fora, programmes and projects.

Who are indigenous peoples

澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 recognises Indigenous Peoples as those set out in the 聽(1989) and the 听(鲍狈顿搁滨笔):

  1. tribal peoples in independent countries whose social, cultural and economic conditions distinguish them from other sections of the national community, and whose status is regulated wholly or partially by their own customs or traditions or by special laws or regulations;
  2. peoples in independent countries who are regarded as indigenous on account of their descent from the populations which inhabited the country, or a geographical region to which the country belongs, at the time of conquest or colonisation or the establishment of present state boundaries and who, irrespective of their legal status, retain some or all of their own social, economic, cultural and political institutions.


Self-identification as indigenous or tribal shall be regarded as a fundamental criterion for determining the groups to which the provisions of this Convention apply.

An 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 Indigenous Peoples鈥 organisation strategy

As a distinct and mobilised constituency within 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料, IPO Members have also developed a self-determined strategy identifying joint priorities for advancing their rights and issues in conservation and engaging with each other and within 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 moving forward. These priorities focus particularly on leveraging 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料鈥檚 convening power, knowledge generation, standard setting and policy engagement in regard to indigenous issues.聽 The strategy outlines actions to:

  • Increase indigenous participation in 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料鈥檚 governance;
  • Participate in 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料鈥檚 global policy engagement processes;
  • Promote the recognition of rights in relation to lands and territories, natural and cultural resources;
  • Promote the creation of a system of indigenous protected areas that strengthens the use, management and conservation of natural resources by indigenous peoples;
  • Address issues related to cultural heritage;
  • Address the rights and participation of indigenous women; and
  • Support indigenous organisation institutional strengthening.

Strengthening indigenous voices and action

Championing indigenous conservation governance at 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料

At the 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 World Conservation Congress in 2016, the 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 Members Assembly adopted a landmark decision for Indigenous peoples and conservation. Members voted to create a new category of 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 membership for Indigenous Peoples鈥 Organisations (IPO), strengthening the recognition of their rights, participation, voice and role in 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料.聽 This was the first time 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 reformed its membership structure in its 70-year history and it did so specifically to recognise the specific situation and role of IPOs. This change in 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料鈥檚 governance structure now allows 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 to play an important convening and facilitating role for indigenous participation in environmental decision-making. Today, Indigenous members and leaders play important governance roles at 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 through its Council and Commissions.

At the 2021 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 World Conservation Congress, IPOs participated for the first time as Indigenous Peoples鈥 Organisation Members of 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 and - along with the 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 Secretariat and CEESP, led the organising of the first ever - where they launched their , which calls on聽 the wider conservation community, including States, to recognise, respect and protect the collective rights and governance of Indigenous peoples to their lands, territories, waters, coastal seas and natural resources.

    Supporting indigenous conservation leadership聽

    In 2021, to amplify indigenous voices and priorities, 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 collaborated with the Forest Farm Facility and IFNOTUSTHENWHO? in producing a communications campaign called . The campaign published a series of video messages from IPOs and partners and published news and events to help inform and advance indigenous rights in a key year of environmental policymaking.

    In 2022, 澳门六合彩开奖记录资料 and Conservation International launched the , a project that will support Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities (IPLCs) to secure and enhance their stewardship over an estimated area of at least 7.5 million hectares of landscapes, seascapes and/or territories with high biodiversity and irreplaceable ecosystems.
