The Indigenous Navigator (IN) is a framework and set of tools for and by indigenous peoples to monitor the level of recognition and implementation of their rights. By using IN, indigenous organisations and communities, duty bearers, NGOs and journalists access free tools and resources based on community-generated data. IN monitors the implementation of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, international human rights conventions, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and Outcomes of the World Conference on Indigenous Peoples. IN allows indigenous communities to perform gap analyses and develop proposals that address their needs. This ensures that the actions developed after the data analysis are owned and driven forward by indigenous communities.
