The study covers three main subjects: (i) UNICEF’s approach to working with indigenous children and women, as described in the reports submitted to UNPFII and other key sources; (ii) content and organizational arrangements of UNICEF’s work in support of indigenous children and women at the regional and country levels; and (iii) implementation of the approach in two programme/project case study sites.
The case studies describe in detail how UNICEF’s approach is being implemented in complex, real-life, grass-roots contexts. The Peruvian case study focuses on a donor-assisted, multimilliondollar project, implemented during 2001–2009 with the Wampis of the Santiago River District in the Amazon. The Congo case study has a broader scope, covering a series of local initiatives implemented with small funds in support of the Baka of the Likouala and Sangha Departments as well as a national plan for indigenous peoples, which is currently promoted and supported by the UNICEF Country Office.
