United Nations Indigenous Peoples’ Partnership (UNIPP): Delivering as One UN at the country level in partnership with indigenous peoples
ILO, UNDP, UNDG, UNICEF, UNFPA, OHCHR, August 2012

The UN Indigenous Peoples’ Partnership (UNIPP) five-year strategic framework outlines UNIPP’s thematic areas of focus for the realization of indigenous peoples’ rights, including: legislative review and reform; democratic governance and strengthening of indigenous peoples’ institutions; access to justice, and the recognition and strengthening of indigenous customary law and justice systems; access to land and ancestral territories; conflict prevention, consultation, participation, benefit-sharing and dispute resolution around ancestral land and use of natural resources, also in the context of extractive industries; and access to education and health. UNIPP seeks to further these themes through: capacity development; establishment or strengthening of consultative and participatory mechanisms; plans to carry out capacity development; support of pilot initiatives and countries; and support of knowledge networks and sharing of important experiences.

The UNIPP brochure describes the genesis, governance and guiding principles of UNIPP and its Multi-Partner Trust Fund, highlighting the initiative as a response to UNDRIP Article 41, which calls on the UN system to contribute to the full realization of indigenous peoples’ rights through the mobilization of financial cooperation and technical assistance.
