Indigenous peoples’ rights to lands, territories and resources

This report published by the International Land Coalition (ILC) sets out a systematic analysis of the distinctive features of indigenous peoples’ rights to lands, territories, and resources. It includes the various international instruments and mechanisms to address these, and regional perspectives from Africa, Asia and Latin America. The report seeks to elaborate the potential implications for the ILC’s further engagement on thematic priorities including women’s rights, community conservation and REDD+, as well as with indigenous peoples themselves. It identifies a set of key trends, challenges, and opportunities, and establishes a possible set of indicators of progress and implementation for each aspect of indigenous peoples’ rights under the main provisions of international law as enshrined in ILO Convention No. 169 and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
