UNESCO and Indigenous Peoples: Partnership to Promote Cultural Diversity - Publication 

This new publication pays tribute to the significant place that indigenous cultures occupy in the world’s cultural landscape. 


The information booklet explains UNESCO’s vision, strategy, programme and mechanisms regarding intercultural dialogue and partnerships with indigenous peoples. It illustrates the kinds of actions that UNESCO will pursue during the Second International Decade on the World’s Indigenous People (2005-2014) in its areas of competence: education, social and natural science, culture and communication.

The booklet includes a chapter on reviewing the lessons learned from the First International Decade of the World’s Indigenous People and a discussion on the Second Decade, its goals and objectives as well as the challenges involved for UNESCO.

It thus bears witness to UNESCO’s commitment to take into account the proposals of indigenous peoples with a view to elaborating specific programmes to enhance their cultural identity and to encourage intercultural dialogue. UNESCO is pursuing this third objective within the framework of the Second International Decade on the World’s Indigenous People.
