Join us for a learning session at the UN
Sustainable development and human rights are interlinked. One cannot be achieved without the other. The Indigenous Navigator Initiative is contributing to a learning, training and practice session at the United Nations Headquarters in New York during this year’s High-Level Political Forum.
Our session focuses on the human rights-based approach to eradicating poverty and promoting prosperity.
The session will explore how human rights:
- Make sure that no one is left behind
- Guide SDG implementation and data collection
- Reduce reporting burdens for states
- Provide a framework for partnerships
This will be an opportunity to discuss with high-level representatives of governments, the UN-system, indigenous peoples, national human rights institutions, civil society, and business.
WHEN: 14 July 2017 3PM-6PM
WHERE: Conference room 6, UNHQ, New York
