The Indigenous Navigator tools, data and resources can be used for for systematically monitoring the level of recognition of the rights of indigenous peoples. The Indigenous Navigator offers rich opportunities for calculating and illustrating the situation for indigenous peoples.
The data generated from surveys or other Indigenous Navigator tools can be used as documentation and information that can empower indigenous peoples to advocate for their rights. In that sense, the Indigenous Navigator can be seen as a starting point for strengthening indigenous peoples’ rights.
For advocacy purposes, it is important to know that the the Indigenous Navigator monitors the implementation of the following international agendas and legal frameworks:
- The UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP)
- Core human rights conventions as they pertain to indigenous peoples
- The outcomes of the World Conference on Indigenous Peoples (WCIP)
- Essential aspects of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
