      IPIECA responds to the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) business reference guide.

      <http://www.un.org/esa/socdev/unpfii/documents/DRIPS_en.pdf>[http://www.ipieca.org/system/files/uploads/DRIPS_en-1.jpg%5d<http://www.un.org/esa/socdev/unpfii/documents/DRIPS_en.pdf><http://www.un.org/esa/socdev/unpfii/documents/DRIPS_en.pdf>IPIECA provided feedback on the exposure draft of the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP)business reference document, which aims to provide guidance on how to respect the rights of Indigenous Peoples. Key elements of the feedback were:
      * The need for the document to reflect and reinforce the UN Guiding Principles (UNGPs), particularly to ensure that business duty to respect rights is balanced with the state duty to protect. [emphasis added]
      * The concept of 'support' for Indigenous Peoples rights is already built into the concept of 'Respect' in the UNGPs and additional focus is therefore not needed, as suggested by the Exposure Draft.
      * The guidance should strive for consistency in the interpretation of Free, Prior and Informed consent (FPIC) and ensure its approach is aligned with existing international policy frameworks.

      IPIECA appreciates the emphasis the guidance places on the contribution of Indigenous Peoples to business and society, and the potential of mutually beneficial relationships between business and Indigenous Peoples.
