General call for contributions on the consequences of exposure of indigenous people to toxic and otherwise hazardous substances

The Special Rapporteur on the implications for human rights of the environmentally sound management and disposal of hazardous substances and wastes, pursuant to Human Rights Council resolution 36/15 will dedicate his upcoming report to the UN General Assembly in 2019 to examining the consequences of exposure of indigenous people all around the world to toxic and otherwise hazardous substances.

The report will be preceded by a study on the same subject, which he intends to present to the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues in April 2019. At its 16th session, the Forum invited the Special rapporteur to carry out a review within his mandated area of expertise and to present conclusions to the Forum.

Responses to the questionnaire can be sent no later than 15 February 2019 to srtoxicwaste(at)ohchr.org (preferred option) or addressed to:
