ILEPA is thoroughly engaged in making Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) work for indigenous people. As such, it is a local partner to EU supported Indigenous Navigator project, a framework and set of tools for and by indigenous peoples to systematically monitor the level of recognition and implementation of their rights. Indeed, documenting the human rights and development situation of indigenous peoples is a critical step towards discussing it with duty-bearers and other external stakeholders.
The rights armed in the UNDRIP and a number of SDGs that are relevant to indigenous peoples are used as a basis for measurement and indicators. Each question monitors a specific domain of interest to indigenous people: education, health, employment/occupation, self-determination, cultural integrity, land and territories, and participation.
