Indigenous Peoples' Organisation
Represented by Cathy Eatock, Co-Chair
How does your organisation address climate change?
The Indigenous Peoples Organisation (IPO) is a coalition of 285 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and individuals who advocate for Indigenous rights at the United Nations and are committed to implementing the Declaration of the Rights of Indigenous Peoples within Australia and overseas. IPO addresses a wide range of concerns from land and climate management, cultural heritage, remote communities, welfare entitlements, housing and services, community well-being, and self-determination as the key overarching right, which is the foundation of all other rights.
What is your organisation doing to create a better future?
Working within IPO’s coalition of 285 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and individuals, our activities over the next 12 months will focus on increasing the understanding of climate change priorities for Indigenous peoples and strengthening collaboration and readiness for joint advocacy among these groups.
