During the 14th session of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII) which takes place at the UN Headquarters in New York from 20 April to 1 May 2015, Docip sets up a technical secretariat to the attention of the indigenous delegates attending this conference. Docip’s technical secretariat is located in Conference Room B, on level B1 of the Conference Building and is open from 9am to 6.30pm.
To offer logistical support to the work of the indigenous delegations, Docip’s team gathers more than 60 volunteers and offers the following free services:
- Translations to and from English, French, Spanish and Russian
- Interpretation to and from English, French, Spanish and Russian for informal meetings
- Information on the 14th session of the Permanent Forum

- Photocopies and other administrative tasks
In order to provide these services, Docip’s technical secretariat puts the following at the disposal of indigenous peoples :
- An office to use as workspace
- Several computers and printer
- Internet connexions
- Office supplies
Docip gathers, files and posts on line, as soon as possible once received, all the statements read during the Permanent Forum. They will be available here on the documentary database of Docip’s website, or by going on www.docip.org, to Documentation –> online documentation -> Conferences -> Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues -> 2015. You will also find there the reference and related documents, including the agenda and the proposed organisation of work. Documents relating to the 14th session of the UNPFII are also found here on the Permanent Forum’s website.
We thank you in advance for giving a copy (paper or electronic) of your statements to Docip so that they can be published online in Docip’s documentary database and thus preserved in the long term. You can send your declarations by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We precise that all statements will be kept in Docip and that only those read during the session will be published on our website.
