This summary presents a description of the analysis of recommendations made at working sessions of the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII). The study also reviews the implementation of these recommendations by United Nations Member States. 

The United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII) was created in 2000 as an advisory body to the United Nations Economic and Social Council on indigenous issues. It has since held more than 17 working sessions.

The study evaluates progress made in implementing the Permanent Forum’s recommendations. It also aims to better understand the achievements, limits, barriers and scope of the proposals and to improve their implementation.

Undertaken in collaboration between CHIRAPAQ, the Center for Indigenous Peoples' Cultures of Peru and UNFPA, the study focuses on recommendations involving sexual and reproductive health and gender-based violence affecting indigenous women. It is complemented with information on the implementation of recommendations in nine countries: Australia, Canada, Guatemala, Kenya, Mexico, Norway, Peru, the Republic of the Congo and Thailand.
