Date: 15 August 2013
Description:

On July 22-24, 2013, the Bank Information Center hosted indigenous peoples (IP) advocate Vicky Tauli-Corpuz for high-level meetings with staff from the US House of Representatives Tom Lantos Human Rights Commission, the US Department of Treasury, the World Bank safeguards consultation team, and several World Bank Executive Director’s offices (namely the US, four EU offices, New Zealand, Malaysia, and the Philippines) in Washington...

During her meetings in DC, Vicky used the indigenous peoples rights perspective as the entry point for broader discussions on the planned structure and scope of the new safeguard policies, focusing primarily on the demand to (i) maintain a stand-alone policy on indigenous peoples within the safeguards or at the very least keep IPs separate from other vulnerable and marginalized groups; (ii) ensure that the rights of indigenous peoples such as Free Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) are not watered down in the new policies; (iii) broaden the scope of the safeguards review to cover Development Policy Loans (DPLs) and other lending instruments as they relate to indigenous peoples, especially in regards to natural resource management; and (iv) include indigenous peoples more actively in Bank processes, especially in accountability mechanisms and monitoring and evaluation activities.
