For who?

NCIV brings the issues and views of indigenous peoples to the attention of the Dutch government, civil society, business, science and media and works to encourage them to make a positive contribution to improving the situation of indigenous peoples at national and international levels.

NCIV is convinced that the Dutch government, civil society organisations, scientific institutions and businesses can make a significant contribution to improving the situation of indigenous peoples. The Dutch government has impact on indigenous peoples through international cooperation, foreign policy and its policies on sustainable trade that might affect them. Many sectors of the Dutch business, such as timber, palm oil and soy industry is linked to the well being of indigenous peoples. And Dutch civil society plays an important role in international cooperation, sustainable trade, conservation and promotion of human rights.
