Launch of the Indigenous Navigator Tools Database

New tool database and website makes it easy to explore the interconnected elements of the Indigenous Navigator framework through the dimensions and key attributes of indigenous peoples’ rights.

The Indigenous Navigator builds on a comprehensive set of tools to monitor indigenous peoples’ rights and development. The indicators are aligned with international standards including UNDRIP and underlying human rights instruments; the outcome of the WCIP; the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, and other international frameworks. Every indicator monitors a key attribute of indigenous peoples’ rights and comes with survey questions and corresponding guidance for interviewers and respondents.

With the new Indigenous Navigator Tools Database, it will be much easier for partners and users of the tools and methodology to explore these interlinked components in an integrated way. The database offers the following key features:

  • Explore indicators, questions and guidance through the dimensions and key attributes of indigenous peoples’ rights, and identify synergies with monitoring the realisation of the 2030 Agenda for indigenous peoples
  • Explore how the provisions of UNDRIP reflect standards contained in a range of binding international human rights instruments, including ILO Convention 169, core UN human rights conventions, and a range of other instruments.

The Indigenous Navigator tools database is available now in three languages: English, French, and Spanish. The development of the database has been made possible through a generous grant by the Christensen Fund. Explore the database at https://navigator.humanrights.dk or by using the link under the tools section of Indigenousnavigator.org   

Key feature 1: explore indicators, questions and guidance by dimension and key attribute

Key feature 2: explore the connection between UNDRIP and other international instruments

 The production of the tools database was funded by The Christensen Fund, channelled and executed by The Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR), under the Indigenous Navigator Initiative, which is funded by the European Commission - Development & Cooperation - EuropeAid.
