Indigenous peoples and Afro-descendants

Available in: EnglishEspañolPortuguês

Given the great cultural diversity of Latin America, an essential aspect of population affairs in the region is to heighten awareness of the situation of indigenous peoples and include them in public agendas, in keeping with their human rights standards. This is a priority area for CELADE, whose work aims to strengthen the production, analysis and dissemination of sociodemographic information on indigenous peoples, to serve as input for better policy- and decision-making.
