The Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact (AIPP) is a regional organization founded in 1992 by indigenous peoples’ movements. AIPP is committed to the cause of promoting and defending indigenous peoples’ rights and human rights and articulating issues of relevance to indigenous peoples.
They work to secure the rights of and enable the progressive growth of the Indigenous Peoples (IPs) of Asia through effective engagements, innovative partnerships, and inclusive actions to empower, uplift and secure the rights, dignity and adaptive capacities of communities.
At present, AIPP has 46 members from 14 countries in Asia with 18 indigenous peoples’ national alliances/networks (national formations), 30 local and sub-national organizations. Together, their vision is a world where Indigenous Peoples’ (IPs) dignified voices and choices in Asia are recognised, empowered and sustainably progressing with fully secured rights and dignity in an environment of justice, peace and equality.
