End of mission statement
by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples,
Victoria Tauli-Corpuz on her visit to the Republic of Congo

In my capacity as Special Rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples, I undertook an official mission to the Republic of the Congo, at the invitation of the Government, from 14 to 24 October 2019. The purpose of my visit was to assess progress made in the promotion and protection of the rights of indigenous peoples since the visit in 2010 of my predecessor, Prof. James Anaya, and more specifically, national efforts to implement the recommendations contained in his report.

I thank the Government of the Republic of the Congo for its cooperation with the special procedures of the Human Rights Council by inviting me for this visit and the welcome extended to me by government representatives, including at the highest levels. I was received by the Prime Minister, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Justice, the Minister of Social Affairs, the Minister of Forest Economy, Minister of Health and Gender and the Minister of Primary and Secondary Education and Alphabetisation. I met with the President of the National Assembly and the President of the Senate. I met with technical experts from the Ministry of Land Affairs, the President's department for the promotion and integration of women and with the Executive Secretary of the newly established Women Advisory Council and the President of the National Human Rights Commission. I also appreciate the government's efforts to facilitate my visit to the Sangha département. While visiting this dense forest more than 800 km north of Brazzaville, I visited three indigenous forest communities in Pokola and Kabo and spoke with members and representatives of the Ngatongo, Bomassa, Peke and Djaka communities. Upon my return to Brazzaville, I also consulted with indigenous representatives from the Lekoumou, Pool and Plateaux départements.

Statement of Ms. Victoria Tauli-Corpuz
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.
