  7. Implementing the ILO Indigenous and Tribal Peoples Convention No. 169: Towards an inclusive, sustainable and just future

    11 October 2021

    Over thirty years have passed since the adoption of Convention No. 169. There have been some positive outcomes of indigenous and tribal peoples in many countries, ranging from their increased visibility in policy discussions, improved statistical data collection on their situation, to a decline in poverty rates. However, such progress has been limited in several countries, with indigenous and tribal peoples facing continued invisibility. The report being discussed at this Research Seminar takes up the ambitious task of peeling away the layers of this invisibility, particularly in terms of data, and statistics, by presenting the social and economic situation of indigenous women and men by looking at key aspects such as population, employment and poverty. It also showcases the important strides made in public policies, particularly with regard to institutions, consultation and participation. Furthermore, it highlights the critical role of the Convention as a framework for social justice, peace, participatory democracy, and inclusive and sustainable development for all – which is necessary to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals and undertake meaningful climate action.
