2009 UN Report: The State of the World's Indigenous Peoples
The State of the World's Indigenous Peoples is the result of a collaborative effort, organized by the Secretariat of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues. Joji Carino from Tebtebba Foundation, and ESCR-Net member wrote the first chapter of the report; the chapter is titled Poverty and Well Being. In her own words, the chapter presents "an overview of issues linked to modern economic development and the impoverishment of indigenous peoples, the status and trends in the practice of traditional occupations, indicators relevant to indigenous peoples’ well-being and sustainable development, and corporate globalization and sustainability of indigenous communities. It also contains some core findings of selected thematic or country case studies relevant to the subject of indigenous peoples and development."
