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 as they were in the Millennium Development Goals.
