About the course

The purpose of this course is to provide an introduction to Indigenous Peoples’ rights in the context of projects taking place in or near the lands and waters they use or have traditionally occupied.

The course is aimed at an international audience of social performance and sustainability practitioners and people involved in the governance of projects from public and private institutions. This course is aimed at early career practitioners who have professional experience in infrastructure, energy, mining or oil and gas project development who would like to do them, people who are involved in assessing them, and people with a general interest in the field.
