The United Nations Declaration on the rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) constitutes a landmark in the struggle of indigenous peoples worldwide, including Africa. It is the most comprehensive international human rights instrument to explicitly address the rights of indigenous peoples. At its 41st Ordinary Session held in May 2001, In Accra, Ghana, the African Commission on Human and Peoples’ Rights (African Commission) adopted the “Advisory Opinion on the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples”, in which it stated that the Rights enshrines in the UNDRIP were consistent with the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights and the jurisprudence of the African Commission. As a testimony to the continuing support and advocacy of the UNDRIP, the African Commission’s Working Group on Indigenous Populations/Communities has produced a combined publication of the UNDRIP and the Advisory Opinion of the African Commission on the UNDRIP.
