INDIGENOUS PEOPLES AND THE UNITED NATIONS SUSTAINAIBLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS

One of the main outcomes of the United Nations (UN) Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in June 2012, was the agreement by UN Member States to launch a process to develop Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).  The SDGs are the basis for the UN’s development agenda post-2015.  Indigenous Peoples are actively involved in this process to ensure that their concerns are reflected and their rights are protected. The International Indian Treaty Council is one of two Organizing Partners for the Indigenous Peoples Major Group (IPMG) and is working to ensure broad participation and direct involvement of Indigenous Peoples in this process. Please sign up for our listserv for updates: http://bit.ly/IPMGSDGs

LOS PUEBLOS INDÍGENAS Y LAS OBJETIVOS DE DESARROLLO SOSTENIBLE DE LAS NACIONES UNIDAS

Uno de los resultados principales de la Conferencia sobre el Desarrollo Sostenible (Río +20) de las Naciones Unidas (ONU), celebrada en Río de Janeiro, Brasil, en junio de 2012, fue el acuerdo de los Estados miembros de la ONU de poner en marcha un proceso para desarrollar Metas de Desarrollo Sostenible (MDS). Las MDS son la base de la agenda de desarrollo posterior a 2015 de la ONU. Los Pueblos Indígenas participan activamente en este proceso para asegurar que se reflejen sus inquietudes y se protejan sus derechos. El Consejo Internacional de Tratados Indios (CITI) es uno de dos asociados organizadores para el Grupo Principal de Pueblos Indígenas y está trabajando para asegurar la participación amplia y directa de los Pueblos Indígenas en este proceso. Para actualizaciones, suscríbase a nuestra lista de distribución: http://bit.ly/IPMGSDGs
