  • Posted on via Facebook: Monitoring implementation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples requires that all parties to the Declaration (states and nations) are accountable for their actions or failure to act.

The superb journalist Elizabeth Walsh writing from Paris has provided an excellent rendering of "Indigenous Navigator" ... an online tool still in the making to monitor UNDRIP/state and nation compliance.
