UK celebrates World Indigenous Day 2021


London, 9 August 2021 (TDI): The World Indigenous Day is celebrated each year on August 09. According to the findings of United Nations approximately 476 million people are indigenous around the world. It was marked in 1994 by the UN General Assembly for the first time. The theme of this year 2021 is “Leaving no one behind: Indigenous people and the call for a new social contract.”

This day is an opportunity to recognize the rich diversity of the world’s indigenous people and their contributions to protecting the planet. According to the Paris Agreement when adopting the climate change action, the concerned parties should respect indigenous rights and promote the perspectives of indigenous people. Moreover, in account of this, UK is mastering inclusivity and bringing indigenous perspectives into the Conference of the Parties (COP) on climate change processes and stated that to ensure this the indigenous knowledge should be comprehensively planned in the climate change action.


According to the report of UN Geneva, the indigenous people are the world’s best forest guardians and manage almost 33% of forests and hold 80% of the world’s biodiversity.
