PRESS RELEASE 139
International day of the world’s indigenous peoples
09/08/2013

​9 August 2013. The Government of Spain wishes to join in the commemoration of the International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples, which the United Nations Assembly agreed to celebrate in 1995, thereby reasserting its solidarity with the development of Indigenous Peoples and its commitment to defending their rights.

Since 2007, Spain has had a Strategy for Spanish Cooperation with Indigenous Peoples, a document that expresses the demands of indigenous movements and organisations and defines Spanish cooperation policy in this area, in accordance with the principles set out in the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, approved by the United Nations General Assembly. At the core of Spanish Cooperation, the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID) has a specialist technical unit called the Indigenous Programme. Its main aim consists of coordinating and organising cooperation for the development of indigenous peoples.
