Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples
Seventy-fourth session of the General Assembly
Item 69 (a): Rights of indigenous peoples
New York
11 October 2019

Mr. Chair,
Distinguished delegates,
Indigenous peoples' representatives,
Ladies and gentlemen,

Today I am presenting my final thematic report to the General-Assembly (A/74/149). I have decided to dedicate it to analysis of the recognition and exercise of indigenous peoples' right to self-determination, building on the related report that I submitted to the General-Assembly last year. This year´s report comments on existing legal and other arrangements and processes reflective of or conducive to the recognition and implementation of the right of indigenous peoples to autonomy or self-government, with a view to identify positive elements as well as limitations and challenges, and to provide some recommendations to move forward in the realisation of these fundamental collective rights.

Visit to Timor-Leste. Report of the Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples Print

sucotimorleste

The Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples, Victoria Tauli-Corpuz, visited Timor-Leste from 8 to 16 April 2019.

The present report contains recommendations relating to, inter alia, the formal and customary justice systems, land tenure, consultation and consent, conservation and climate change adaptation measures, education and nutrition.

Timorese indigenous culture and languages are particularly diverse and have been retained throughout colonization and occupation. The vast majority of the population shares indigenous values and spiritual beliefs which are reflected in strong local institutions, the customary justice system and communal land management. Indigenous practices have translated into important gains in environmental protection and biodiversity that can serve as inspiring examples for other countries. Further harmonization between the formal and customary justice systems is important to strengthen access to justice for all. Timor-Leste has made strong commitments to human rights standards and national rights-based development policies; however, additional resource allocations are required to ensure their effective implementation and monitoring, notably in the areas of education, health and nutrition.

ecuadorunsr219

The report reviews the situation of the indigenous peoples of Ecuador on the basis of information received by the Special Rapporteur during her visit to the country between 19 and 29 November 2018.

The Special Rapporteur takes note of the current openness to dialogue between theGovernment and the indigenous peoples. The 2008 Constitution provides a good basis for moving towards a new plurinational and intercultural State model. It is imperative that the Government give priority to addressing structural problems, in particular by guaranteeing the indigenous peoples' rights to their lands, territories and natural resources, to respect for their authorities and justice systems, to proper operationalization of consultations, and to intercultural implementation of their economic, social and cultural rights.
