Indigenous Peoples' Pavilion on Sustainable Development
19 Jun 2012 - 22 Jun 2012
9:00 PM - 6:00 PM

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

While states have failed in ensuring sustainable development, indigenous peoples are showing that this is being done in their communities, exercising their right to a sustainable development that incorporates a holistic view of the world - one that is based on respect for human rights, is ecosystem-based and incorporates traditional knowledge and interculturality.

The Indigenous Peoples' Pavilion will highlight indigenous peoples' work in achieving its Indigenous Peoples Plan of Implementation on Sustainable Development, which was identified and agreed upon by indigenous peoples in the Kimberley Summit in 2002. Exhibits will cover the themes of climate change, biodiversity, assertion of rights, indigenous education, indigenous health, sustainable economies and traditional livelihoods, among others.

The Indigenous Peoples' Pavilion is organized by the Indigenous Peoples Global Steering Committee for Rio +20.
