CSIPN: Center for Support of Indigenous Peoples of the North

The Center for Support of Indigenous Peoples of the North (CSIPN) is a non-governmental organization focused on advancing the economic, social and cultural development of the indigenous communities of the Russian North, Siberia and the Far East by providing training and support services. Its ultimate objective is to ensure Indigenous peoples’ sustainability by being directly involved in economic development matters and to ensure their participation in the decision-making processes at the national, regional and local levels. CCCS has been working with CSIPN since 2010 on projects to profile all of Russia's Indigenous Peoples for the World Bank, encourage regional initiatives, and promote participatory and sustainable development in indigenous lands in the Arctic, Siberia, and the Far East of the Russian Federation.
