Achievements and Challenges in Strengthening the Indigenous Peoples Human Rights Defenders Network in Asia

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 [8] 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.
