Indigenous People

Indigenous people are actively involved in implementation and monitoring of SDGs and the New Urban agenda in cities and human settlements, in the spirit of the Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous people. The situation of indigenous peoples in urban areas varies. Although indigenous people who migrate to urban areas can adapt and improve their living conditions without loss of cultural identity; some are subject to discrimination, exclusion, and violence, therefore the need for special attention to be paid to ensure better inclusion and integration.
