Aboriginal Health and #UN Capacity building Program : Applications Close October 1 : For an opportunity to focus on the rights of Indigenous peoples
” The Sustainable Development Goals ( SDGs ) is an opportunity to focus on the rights of Indigenous peoples and ensure they have the capability to participate in decision making; implement and advocate policies on inequality. “
This special program will build the capacity of advocates from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and organisations to use UNDRIP as they engage with governments and the private sector in incorporating SDGs in their planning.
• Increase awareness and understanding of the UNDRIP and SDGs and their relevance to Australia
• Build knowledge and skills to promote the application and implementation of UNDRIP, including the right to Free, Prior and Informed Consent;
• Catalyze engagement and coordination to ensure that SDG planning, resourcing and monitoring prioritise the perspectives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples;
• Contribute to inclusion of Indigenous Peoples and Indigenous Peoples’ rights in Australia’s reporting to the UN High Level Political Forum (HLPF) and national SDG review processes.
The SDGs is an opportunity to focus on the rights of Indigenous peoples and ensure they have the capability to participate in decision making; implement and advocate policies on inequality.
