Madame Chairperson of the Permanent Forum,

Distinguished Members of the Permanent Forum,
Excellencies, Indigenous representatives, ladies and gentlemen,

It is an honour for me to address the Permanent Forum and all those attending the interactive discussion on the human rights situation of indigenous peoples. Let me congratulate you Madame Chair, for being elected to this post and offer my continuing cooperation with the Forum.

In my intervention today, I would like to provide an update on my work as Special Rapporteur since I reported last year, and to elaborate on some of the activities I have been involved in under four, interrelated areas of work: the preparation of thematic reports; the conduct of country visits; the response to cases of alleged human rights violations; and the technical assistance and promotion of best practices.

Nota técnica sobre la consulta y el consentimiento libre, previo e informado de los pueblos indígenas en México Print

Nota técnica sobre la consulta y el consentimiento libre,
previo e informado de los pueblos indígenas en México

Febrero de 2019

Victoria Tauli-Corpuz,
Relatora Especial de Naciones Unidas
sobre los Derechos de los Pueblos Indígenas

Desde mi visita oficial a México, en noviembre de 2017, he seguido con atención las acciones encaminadas a la implementación de las recomendaciones realizadas en mi informe de misión (A/HRC/39/17/Add.2). En este contexto, quisiera expresar mi profunda preocupación al Gobierno de México en relación con la información recibida por mi mandato en los últimos meses acerca de proyectos de inversión anunciados por el  Gobierno que podrían afectar los derechos de los pueblos indígenas y en particular, la intención de realizar consultas ciudadanas para recabar la opinión de la población nacional en general sobre la ejecución o no de esos proyectos. Falta claridad sobre como las consultas previstas tendrán en cuenta las obligaciones del Estado mexicano de implementar procesos específicos de consulta previa con los pueblos indígenas potencialmente afectados con el fin de obtener su consentimiento libre, previo e informado.

La nota técnica adjunta recapitula la importancia, el objetivo y la finalidad de los derechos de consulta y consentimiento libre, previo e informado de los pueblos indígenas. He decidido hacer pública dicha nota que espero sea una contribución constructiva en las discusiones sobre la materia.

La nota técnica quiere subrayar que los procesos de consulta ciudadana diseñados para la población nacional en general no garantizan las salvaguardas de los derechos de los pueblos indígenas consagradas en los estándares internacionales de derechos de los pueblos indígenas.

Keynote Address: Indigenous Peoples' Forum in IFAD,
4th Global Session, 12-14 February 2019,
IFAD Headquarters, Rome, Italy

Victoria Tauli-Corpuz,
UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

Mr. Gilbert Houngbo, President of IFAD, Mr. Paul Winters, Members of the Governing Council of IFAD, the Senior Management and staff of IFAD, members of the Indigenous Peoples' Steering Committee, Indigenous representatives, ladies and gentlemen,

It is an honor for me to speak at this opening plenary of the 4th Global Meeting of the Indigenous Peoples' Forum at IFAD. I always look forward to attending this Forum because it represents what can possibly be achieved through a partnership between indigenous peoples and a UN Multilateral Financial Institution. For many of us, indigenous peoples, we started knowing IFAD only in 2001. It has not been that long but many milestones have been achieved between then and now. The theme "Promoting Indigenous Peoples' Knowledge and Innovations for Climate Resilience and Sustainable Development" is so apt as several of the gains achieved by indigenous peoples since the Forum in 2017 speak to this theme.

Climate Change and Human Rights. Joint statement of the UN Special Procedures Mandate Holders. 24th Conference of the Parties to the UNFCCC Print

Climate Change and Human Rights

Leer versión en español [pdf]

6 December 2018 - As independent experts of the UN Human Rights Council*, we call on States to fully integrate human rights standards and principles in the rules for implementing the Paris Agreement on climate change (the Paris Rulebook). In a significant breakthrough, in 2015, Parties to the Paris Agreement recognized the need to integrate their human rights obligations and their efforts to address climate change, pledging to respect and protect human rights in all climate actions. Now, as the Parties meet in Katowice, Poland for the 24th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (3 to 14 December 2018), they must take the necessary steps to operationalize their human rights obligations as they finalize the Paris Rulebook.

Climate change is one of today's greatest threats to human rights, as illustrated in the recently released Special Report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)1, which describes the ways in which climate change is transforming life on earth and adversely impacting the lives and livelihoods of millions of people. The IPCC concluded that "rapid, far-reaching and unprecedented changes in all aspects of society" are needed to prevent catastrophic climate impacts. Unfortunately, the existing commitments of State Parties to the Paris Agreement—through their nationally determined contributions—put the world heading for 3°C of warming.
