Proposal :  Recognition of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

Summary :  When we speak of sustainable development, it is important to seek the perspectives of the Indigenous Peoples because most of the remaining natural resources needed to achieve sustainable development are located in indigenous territories. In order to achieve this goal, the UNDRIP must be used as a minimum standard in considering the perspectives of the Indigenous Peoples. In recognizing this, culture must be included as pillars of sustainable development. Culture is important because it includes the ideas, characters and ways of thinking and framework of the people. This means that we should consider values and framework - what the people really needs, what are appropriate to them and their society without destroying the environment and their habitat when we speak of sustainable development.
