Preparations

International Expert Group Meeting on Indigenous Peoples, business, autonomy and the human rights principles of due diligence, including free, prior and informed consent, 6-10 December 2021

The Indigenous Peoples in Development Branch within the Division of Inclusive Social Development of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs organized the international expert group meeting on a theme “Indigenous Peoples, business, autonomy and the human rights principles of due diligence, including free, prior and informed consent” recommended by the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues and endorsed by the Economic and Social Council.

Questionnaires:

Virtual regional dialogues

In 2021, the Permanent Forum committed to facilitating informal online regional dialogues on autonomy and self-governance to support the development of guiding principles for the realization of the rights of indigenous peoples to autonomy and self-government. The Permanent Forum also invited the Inter-Agency Support Group on Indigenous People’s Issues to participate in the organization of these regional dialogues and in the preparation of a discussion paper on this matter to be presented at the twenty-first session of the Forum. The Forum invited the cooperation of the Group of Friends of Indigenous Peoples to encourage the active participation of Member States in this endeavor.

This initiative builds upon the work and concepts explored at an international expert meeting organized by UNDESA in January 2018 on the theme of sustainable development in the territories of indigenous peoples in the context of Article 4 of the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

In preparation for the 2022 session, the Permanent Forum will organize a series of regional dialogues on this matter in each of the seven socio-cultural regions of the world.

The overarching goal of the regional dialogues is aimed at advancing the development of guiding principles for the implementation of indigenous peoples’ rights to autonomy and self-government
