A two-day expert group meeting on “Indigenous Peoples and Agenda 2030,” organized by the Division for Social Policy and Development of DESA at United Nations Headquarters on 22-23 October aims to develop strategic guidance and recommendations to mobilize action and support for including indigenous issues in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The 2030 Agenda, which was adopted by the UN General Assembly on 25 September 2015, includes six specific references to indigenous peoples. Yet, “States and the UN system must be ambitious, and go beyond the points mentioned in this text to bring indigenous peoples into the achievement of goals and targets – for the 2030 Agenda to be truly inclusive,” said Joan Carling, member of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues, when commenting on the adoption of the landmark document.
