A New Paradigm in Indigenous Peoples and Project Engagement (2022)

CCCS participated along with the Nepal Federation of Indigenous Nationalities (NEFIN) in two side-events organized by the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII) and the UN Expert Mechanism on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNEMRIP) during May and July 2022. During these presentations we jointly presented “A New Paradigm in Indigenous Peoples and Project Engagement.” UN EMRIP 7 July 2022 Side Event

The new paradigm: Indigenous Peoples Participation & Partnership Paradigm lays out an FPIC-infused approach to working with Indigenous communities which carries forth the FPIC process from project preparation through project implementation. This presentation describes why a new paradigm is needed and what are the steps projects need to follow to implement it.
