The information meeting aims to provide UNESCO Permanent Delegations with an update on the consultations on the draft UNESCO policy on engaging with indigenous peoples that were requested by the Executive Board at its 201st session (201 EX/Decisions).
The Policy provides house-wide guidance to ensure a consistent and informed approach to the implementation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples across all of UNESCO’s mandated areas of work. Its relevance is not restricted to a specific suite of activities, but rather applies broadly across the house to any issue of relevance to indigenous peoples.
