About the Conference

Indigenous peoples are also called as ‘’ Adivasis’’in the diverse territories in the world.

They are also responsible for a great deal of the world’s linguistic and cultural diversity, and their traditional knowledge has been and continues to be an invaluable resource that benefits all of mankind.

Yet, indigenous peoples continue to suffer discrimination, marginalization, extreme poverty and conflict.

Some are being dispossessed of their traditional lands, forest rights as their livelihoods are being undermined.

Meanwhile, their belief systems, cultures, languages and ways of life continue to be threatened, sometimes even by extinction. Increasingly, governments are recognizing these threats, and matching such recognition with action.

Governments around the world are making important steps towards addressing indigenous peoples’ concerns.

In responding to the challenges they continue to face, indigenous peoples have engaged the international community, calling for a Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples and a permanent forum at the United Nations that meets regularly to discuss indigenous peoples issues & challenges.
