Informe breve




Indigenous women and girls are the most vulnerable group in Bangladesh. They face multiple and intersecting forms of discrimination due to their gender, ethnicity, language, religion, class and geographic location. According to Kapaeeng Foundation’s statistics, from January 2007 to September 2016, there have been at least 466 reported incidents of violence against indigenous women and girls in Bangladesh.

The Samburu are a Nilotic community who reside in Northern Kenya. One cultural practice among the Samburu community is Girl-Child Beading. This practice sanctions a non-marital sexual relationship between Samburu men in the ‘warrior’ age group and young Samburu girls (usually between the ages of 9-15 years) who are not yet eligible for marriage. The practice has been in the community for centuries and is associated with a number of human rights violations.


This Research Report offers an account of the positive and negative impacts this practice has on indigenous Samburu girls in different communities and a detailed analysis of the legal framework in Kenya for addressing Harmful Cultural Practices. The Report also includes suggested strategies and recommendations to tackle the negative effects Girl-Child Beading have on Samburu girls’ lives.

The global goals and targets for sustainable development have been adopted but indicators are still being formulated. Indicators define what will be measured, and thus how the goals and targets will be implemented. In this position paper Indigenous peoples point at some of their most central concerns on indicators, implementation and monitoring of the 2013 development agenda.

The success of the Post-2015 sustainable development goals (SDGs) will depend on the adoption of indicators that
allow measuring progress towards targets and provide helpful information to policymakers. As member states move towards the next inter-governmental negotiations, we propose two indicators that we believe are fundamental to achieving ‘the future we want’. We confirm that these indicators are meaningful, universal, and feasible, and that they capture fundamental realities affecting key stakeholders at the heart of the SDGs.

In early 2015, Maasai and Datoga citizens living in the Morogoro region of Tanzania were victims of deadly, ethnic violence. According to reports from local media, the assaults were instigated by public figures interested in acquiring land, and state authorities have not intervened to protect Maasai citizens. Police protection has instead been given to others who are illegally cultivating officially registered Maasai land.

The brief calls for urgent action to halt the violence in the Morogoro Region and to put a stop to the current culture of impunity. It states that without strong and public action from the highest levels, Maasai and Datoga citizens will continue to be stigmatized and the prospective of nation-wide violence will remain a threat to stability, development, and peace in Tanzania.

Las mujeres - tanto indígenas como no indígenas - se han involucrado activamente en los procesos nacionales e internacionales de REDD+, para plantear sus preocupaciones por los posibles impactos negativos sobre ellas, y ejercer su derecho a la participación igualitaria en la negociación, planificación e implementación de estos programas. Las mujeres indígenas comparten muchas de sus necesidades y preocupaciones básicas con sus hermanas no indígenas, pero su situación como mujeres en sociedades indígenas las diferencia de aquellas que integran la sociedad general, y sus necesidades y preocupaciones con frecuencia son diferentes. Por lo tanto, sus reclamos puede que no sean atendidos, ni por la defensa de los derechos indígenas ni por la defensa de los derechos de las mujeres y de género. Para defender los derechos de los pueblos indígenas y los derechos de las mujeres, la situación específica y las necesidades de las mujeres deben ser tenidas en cuenta.

Women – both indigenous and non-indigenous – have actively engaged in international and national REDD+ processes to raise their concerns regarding the potential negative impact of REDD+ on women, and to assert their right to equally participate in negotiations, planning and implementation of REDD+.

Indigenous women share many of the basic concerns and needs with their non-indigenous sisters but their situation as women in indigenous societies sets them apart from those who are part of the mainstream society, and their needs and concerns are often different.

Indigenous women’s concerns may thus not be fully addressed, either by indigenous rights advocacy or by women’s rights and gender advocacy. In advocating for the rights of indigenous peoples and for the rights of women, the specific situation and needs of indigenous women therefore need to be taken into account.

Land grabbing is the large-scale acquisition of land for commercial or industrial purposes, such as agricultural and biofuel production, mining and logging concessions or tourism. It involves land being purchased by investors rather than producers, often foreign investors. This is done with limited (if any) consultation of the local communities, limited (if any) compensation, and a lack of regard for environmental sustainability and equitable access to, or control over, natural resources.

Indigenous peoples constitute 5 % of the world’s population but 15 % of the world’s poor. They make up around 1/3 of the world’s extremely poor rural population. Many lack access to, control over and suffer pollution of their water resources, severely damaging their health, livelihood and cultural survival.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) offer a unique opportunity to address these concerns and to take indigenous peoples’ right to water into consideration.

This note, produced by the International Work Group for Indigenous Affairs (IWGIA) in collaboration with Tebtebba and with contributions and advice from indigenous peoples’ experts,1 aims to inform stakeholders about the issue of water from an indigenous perspective in the post 2015-development discussion.

The universal Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the post-2015 development agenda are crucial for indigenous peoples as they will determine the direction of global sustainability and development efforts over the coming decade.

Indigenous peoples make up more than 370 million people worldwide and 15% of the world’s poorest individuals. They represent more than 5,000 distinct ethnic groups and are the guardians of most of the world’s biological and cultural diversity. If the international community is truly committed to a more sustainable future for all, then indigenous peoples must not be ignored the way they were in the Millennium Development Goals.

This case study focuses on the capacity of local communities to monitor biodiversity and resources in Madagascar, Nicaragua, Philippines and Tanzania. It makes a controlled comparison between local community monitoring and trained scientists’ monitoring and conclude that local and indigenous communities generate similar and equally good outputs as the trained scientists, and are much more cost efficient. The cases suggest that it is fully possible to build a cheap and effective MRV system based on community monitoring of Non-Carbon Benefits.

This case study from Peru illustrates the importance of Non-Carbon Benefits (NCBs) to REDD+, and particularly the effects of land demarcation and titling of indigenous communities, its impact on governance and democracy, on social structures and livelihoods, and on environment and forest cover. The case shows that NCBs are both land tenure rights as well as subsistence and coffee production, illustrating the synergy between rights, carbon and economic benefits for the indigenous population.

Recognition of rights to land, territories and natural resources are crucial preconditions for achieving a number of Non-Carbon Benefits for indigenous peoples and local communities and an important incentive for their active participation in REDD+, in all decision-making processes and implementation.

This report is the result of a monitoring visit to assess IWGIA’s support to promoting and defending indigenous peoples’ rights in the new constitution and beyond.

Indigenous peoples in Nepal, known as adivasi janajati, have for centuries experienced systematic discrimination and marginalisation both socially, culturally, politically and economically. The chance to right the historical wrongs came when Nepal embarked upon a constitution drafting and state restructuring process in 2008.
