Recent tasks

Charapa is currently working with AIPP, FPP, ILO, IWGIA and Tebtebba Foundation to develop tools for monitoring the implementation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).

One of the draft tools developed is a comprehensive matrix, showing the substantial links between UNDRIP and other human rights instruments:

Comparative matrix UNDRIP 7.10.

Another draft tools is a table, identifying possible indicators for monitoring States’ implementation of the commitments made in the Outcome Document of the World Conference on Indigenous Peoples, in September 2014:

monitoring WCIP commitments

Another tool is an indicators framework, which shows the full range of indicators that we have identified for monitoring national-level implementation of UNDRIP. The framework also shows how the indicators  relate to MDG indicators as well as to proposed SDG indicators.

Framework country profiling 30.1.15
