ERND’s mission is to support indigenous peoples and local communities (women, men and youth alike) in the protection and defence of their right to land and natural resources, and in their involvement in the processes that affect them. ERND also provides support to local communities so that they may take charge of the social and economic processes that affect poverty reduction. ENRD envisions building a society where the sustainable management of natural resources contributes to the preservation of the environment, to the promotion and protection of indigenous people’s rights, and to local communities, in order to ensure their well-being.
To contribute, in an efficient way, to the promotion, protection and management of natural resources in order to preserve the integrity of indigenous peoples.
Indigenous peoples, local communities, vulnerable peoples, the authorities, women and youth.
