Indigenous Voices at the High Level Political Forum

During this year's High-Level Political Forum (HLPF), several indigenous representatives will engage in short media sessions to reflect on different issues related to sustainable development and indigenous communities. The sessions will be held for 25 minutes in the Department of Public Information Room and coordinated by the Indigenous Peoples Major Group (IPMG) and the International Work Group for Indigenous Affairs (IWGIA).
