The Special Rapporteur is currently carrying out a study on the rights of indigenous peoples in relation to natural resource extraction and development projects affecting them, in light of the high level of information he has received from indigenous peoples expressing concerns about this issue. An important component of this study will be the eventual development of a set of guidelines directed at States, corporations and indigenous peoples on the duty to consult with indigenous peoples in relation to natural resource extraction and development projects.
To gather information for the preparation of this study, the Special Rapporteur has developed a questionnaire for indigenous peoples and organizations, NGOs, and other interested parties. Please fill out the questionnaire here: English, French, Spanish.
Please indicate in your response whether you represent an indigenous people or organization; a business enterprise or a State.
