UN General Assembly (UNGA) resolution 70/486, 'Rights of Indigenous Peoples,' adopted on 1 December 2015, requests the Assembly President to conduct consultations with Member States, indigenous peoples' representatives and UN mechanisms on measures to enable the participation of indigenous peoples' representatives and institutions in UN processes on issues affecting them. An online consultation took place in March and April 2016. The second of two face-to-face consultations will take place on the sidelines of the 15th session of the Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (PFII).
