The overall development objective of this Training Module is the greater fulfilment and enjoyment of human rights and more specifically indigenous peoples’ rights. The aim is to strengthen the capacity of UN staff to effectively gear their interventions towards such achievements. In this framework, the Training Module has two major immediate objectives: 1. Achieve greater awareness, understanding and implementation of relevant policy guidance on indigenous issues by UN staff, particularly in relation to the effective engagement of indigenous peoples and effective recognition of indigenous peoples’ rights in development processes; 2. Achieve mainstreaming of indigenous issues in the UN system’s work at the country level, among others, during the elaboration of a CCA and/or UNDAF, but also in all phases of programme and project cycle management, from conceptualization to post-evaluation. Depending on the needs of the UN staff, one or both of these objectives can be emphasized while using the training module.
