Docip at the 20th session of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues

Dear friends and colleagues,

Despite of the current circumstances, Docip will provide services during the coming 20th session of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII). You will find below the modalities to ask for interpretation or translation services. We will also gather, archive, and make available all your statements, as we did for the past 40 years, to be used as advocacy tools in your actions. Docip is also available to answer any of your questions or to channel them to the persons who can answer.

All the information we receive from around the world show that the current sanitary situation had and still has a huge impact on Indigenous Peoples. More than ever, your voice is necessary to protect your rights and the lives of millions of Indigenous Peoples across the world. Docip stands by your side to support you to make the best of your participation.

Yours Fraternally,

Rémi Orsier
