The Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact (AIPP), a regional umbrella organisation comprising 47 members in 14 Asian countries, initiated a project “Strengthening the Network of Indigenous Peoples Human Rights Defenders for the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights of Indigenous Peoples in Asia” financed by the European Union (EIDHR/2011/266456) as a response to the massive violations of the individual and collective rights of peoples who self-identify as indigenous peoples. The overall objective of the project was that indigenous human rights defenders document, monitor and protect the human rights of indigenous peoples in eight  countries in Asia. This was to be achieved through capacity building, the establishment of a Fund for IPHRDs at risk [IPHRD Fund], networking and advocacy.
An external evaluation was held on May 29 – June 26, 2014 to assess the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability, impacts of the project and to gauge its achievements.
