World Conference on Indigenous Peoples
Attendance to the High Level Plenary Meeting to be known as the World Conference on Indigenous Peoples.
In September 2012, the General Assembly adopted resolution 66/296, expanding the mandate of the Fund to include support for indigenous peoples to participate in the 2014 World Conference on Indigenous Peoples, as well as in the preparatory process for the conference.
There are two meetings that the Fund will support:
- The Interactive Hearing envisaged in the modalities resolution to be held by June 2014. The Fund will support the participation of three representatives per region.
- The World Conference on Indigenous Peoples on 22-23 September, 2014. The Fund will support the participation of 12 representatives per region.
Further information on the application process will be provided in due course.
