of the recommendations of the Permanent Forum by the relevant agencies.

assistance to indigenous peoples of the Chaco region, including by

supporting efforts to combat forced labour and to improve access to water,

food and basic social services, such as health care and education.

conditions among indigenous populations.

The United Nations agencies in Paraguay should work together closely to

address indigenous issues, including forced labour. They should also

coordinate their efforts in support of the emergency facing the peoples of

the Chaco due to drought and should support the Government in

building a strategy for the more sustainable development of the fragile

Chaco region and its indigenous peoples.

To follow up the compliance of the recommendations, the PFII

concluded that:

Round-table dialogue should include follow-up on the implementation of

recommendations made by mechanisms of the United Nations system.

Recommendations on indigenous issues should not be formulated by the

United Nations system without consultation with indigenous peoples and

should always be duly implemented and put into effect with their

participation.

The Permanent Forum invites the parties to hold public meetings to follow

up on this report and other international reports during their upcoming

sessions.

Challenges faced by the missions of the PFII

*Strengthen cooperation among the PFII and the UN agencies for

the compliance of the recommendations issued in its reports.

*Strengthen dialogue mechanisms at the country level between

indigenous peoples’ organizations and the UN country team.
