UNFPA Executive Director Dr. Natalia Kanem will be joined by the world’s leading indigenous human rights defenders for a global conversation on the devastating impact that the COVID-19 pandemic has had on indigenous peoples.

The experts will explore the entrenched inequalities, stigmatization, and discrimination that have given rise to this disproportionate impact, particularly for indigenous women and girls; explore indigenous peoples’ unique contribution to addressing the pandemic and reflect on the short and long term changes needed to build back a more equal and resilient world.
