Indigenous Peoples’ Innovative and Emerging Uses of ICTs
Poster of the WSIS+10 Review meeting
This session is organized within the framework of the ten-year review of the Multistakeholder First World Summit on Information Society (WSIS) hosted by UNESCO on 25-27 February 2013 at its headquarters in Paris, France. The session is organised jointly by UNESCO’s programme on Local and Indigenous Knowledge Systems (LINKS) and the International Indigenous ICT Task Force.

- exchange experiences and best practices; and manage their tangible heritage, including landscape and biological diversity.
A report on 'Indigenous Peoples, WSIS and Emerging uses of ICTs' will be presented and the session outcomes will include recommendations on gaps, achievements and emerging and future trends for indigenous peoples and local communities with respect to section C8 of the WSIS Plan of Action and to UNESCO’s work.
