United Nations Environment Programme
The objective of this Policy Guidance to UNEP is to better understand and build on the Indigenous Peoples’ rights, knowledge, practices and systems that provide the framework for the harmonious relations that most Indigenous Peoples have with their environment. Furthermore, this Policy Guidance aims to ensure that United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) appropriately considers Indigenous Peoples in its activities, with the understanding that UNEP does not speak in the name of or represent Indigenous Peoples.
