This project supports the STI-CNTI’s Observatory of Territorial Rights of Indigenous Peoples and builds on a previous project that began in 2020. The CNTI is a mechanism established by law for negotiations between Indigenous Peoples and the government. The STI-CNTI coordinates the indigenous side in these negotiations. The Observatory collects, manages, and analyses data and prepares reports for the indigenous negotiators, other indigenous leaders, and the public. Besides promoting policies about indigenous territorial rights, the project will help 98 indigenous communities to gain securer rights over almost 7 million hectares.
