MDG-F and Indigenous Women's Forum launch multimedia tool


The MDG-F and the International Indigenous Women's Forum (FIMI-IIWF) have launched a multimedia tool to share the MDG-F's experiences in empowering and supporting indigenous people around the world.

The website showcases lessons learned and best practises garnered from 47 joint UN programmes in 20 countries. 

These programmes have aimed to improve the livelihoods and strengthen the voices of indigenous people, who suffer discrimination and marginalization and worse health indicators than non-indigenous populations.

In particular, the joint programmes sought to increase indigenous participation in economic and political decision-making, strenghthen indigenous organizations, boost incomes of indigenous households and empower indigenous women.
