United Nations Indigenous Peoples’ Partnership (UNIPP)Strategic Framework 2011-2015

— country: Global
— type: Project Documents

(UNIPP) is a joint rights and results based initiative between the International Labour Organization (ILO), the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), and the UN Population Fund (UNFPA). The purpose of UNIPP is to facilitate the implementation of international standards on indigenous peoples, in particular the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) and ILO Convention concerning Indigenous and Tribal Peoples in Independent Countries (ILO Convention No. 169). The Partnership underscores the significant place of indigenous peoples as rights holders under international human rights law. UNIPP seeks to facilitate the implementation of the rights of indigenous peoples, taking as a cornerstone the right to participate in decision-making, state duty to consult, and the principle of free, prior and informed consent. The Partnership seeks to translate these principles into tangible results that advance the rights of indigenous peoples, including the rights of women, children and youth.
