Indigenous Peoples: Development with Culture and Identity

From 15 to 17 September, UNESCO will host the annual meeting of the Inter-Agency Support Group on Indigenous Peoples and welcome the first official visit to UNESCO of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. These events are taking place just one year after the historic adoption of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples by the General Assembly (13 September 2007). They will provide an occasion to discuss the theme development with culture and identity and explore opportunities for the UN system to support the rights and aspirations of indigenous peoples, notably through inter-agency collaboration.
