Consultations with indigenous peoples and Member States on the development of a system-wide action plan
At the 8th Session of the Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples
24 July from 11am to 1pm in Geneva.
The United Nations is developing a system wide action plan to ensure a coherent approach to achieving the ends of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. As a part of this work, the UN has prepared a number of Background Notes that inform the process and highlight some of the challenges to the implementation of the Declaration as well as possible areas of action for the United Nations.

On July 24th at the Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, the UN will organize an interactive consultation, seeking the inputs of Member States and indigenous peoples on how to develop such an action plan.
