Docip Update nº115 - Informing About the Rights of Indigenous Peoples
Docip makes you as Christmas present our last edition of our publication the Update nº115.
As many saw in 2020 this opportunity for a change, it has also been the opportunity for many States and companies to increase the criminalization against human rights defenders, to get more impunity for land grabbing and more generally to discriminate even more – if possible – Indigenous Peoples. And it has been the opportunity for Indigenous Peoples once more to rise up with the means they have, and those definitely are great.
This issue presents in its Focus section the situation induced by the pandemic in the several socio-economic regions, giving the voice to Indigenous organizations. In the Ongoing Processes section, you will find a first article on the EU biodiversity strategy, a second article that summarizes the discussions that were held in the realm of the 13th session of the EMRIP and finally the written statement submitted by the Indigenous Caucus during the 9th session on the FBHR. Finally, the Docip team is being held accountable to our network by presenting the services provided to indigenous peoples this year.
We particularly would like to thank the persons involved in this year’s edition that present the situation for their communities on the ground, and did contributed to the edition through translation and design.
I wish you all the best for this end of the year and a very happy new year for 2021.
Docip - Capacity-Building Projects Coordinator
