Reflections from our partners
Meet the community leaders and implementors behind the Indigenous Navigator's projects
BERNICE SEE - Coordinator at Tebtebba
"In the Philippines, we experienced an increased capacity of leaders to do evidence-based advocacy and planning by using the Indigenous Navigator tools. Next year we will focus on promoting traditional resource management for sustainable livelihoods of indigenous peoples".
FREDERICA BARCLAY - Coordinator at Perú Equidad.
"In 2018, we gathered data from 4 indigenous communities in Peru. With that information, we built a case report about how Quechua communities perceive the implementation of the UNDRIP on the ground. Next year, we will analyse the results from the Wampis indigenous women's perspective, especially assess the social policies implemented in their territories".
SAITOTI PARMELO - Coordinator at ALAPA
"In 2018, we have learned a lot through the narrations and perspectives given by the communities. Their participation is vital to gather the data. We are also glad that the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) took part in the data gathering process".
TAHAL THAMI - Director at Lawyers' Association for Human Rights of Nepalese Indigenous Peoples (LAHURNIP)
"Thanks to the Indigenous Navigator tools we have designed an intervention plan for the forthcoming national census in 2021. We are happy to have disaggregated data by ethnicity ready and that local governments are open to considering using the tools for their local development planning processes".
TORIBIA LERO QUISPE- Sub-Coordinator at Coordinadora Andina de Organizaciones Indígenas (CAOI)
"In 2018 it was a great achievement that we surveyed the communities' needs in terms of access to water. We are happy that we have prioritised the human development needs most relevant for our indigenous communities".
HEAN BUNHIENG - Director at Cambodia Indigenous Peoples Organization (CIPO)
"So far, we have engaged with 20 key ministries. In 2018, we discovered that by gathering data, we were able to work with the community to develop stronger village development plans".
