Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact (AIPP)

The Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact (AIPP) was inaugurated following the 1992 Bangkok meeting of indigenous peoples of Asia, which resulted in the recognition of the need to promote indigenous peoples rights. AIPP is crucial for indigenous peoples in Asia in fostering closer cooperation and solidarity among themselves, restoring and revitalizing their indigenous systems, including social and cultural institutions, gaining control over their ancestral homeland, and determining their own development and future.


AIPP sends representatives to various UN meetings, and holds training sessions and annual conferences. Its research work, though not fully developed, has produced several outputs. The AIPP Secretariat also regularly disseminates information.
