Con motivo del décimo aniversario de la aprobación unánime por parte del Consejo de Derechos Humanos de los Principios Rectores de las Naciones Unidas sobre las Empresas y los Derechos Humanos, y basándose en el informe de evaluación recientemente publicado por el Grupo de Trabajo de las Naciones Unidas sobre la aplicación durante la primera década y la hoja de ruta para la próxima década, en esta sesión se debatirán las acciones clave sugeridas por la hoja de ruta en relación con el respeto de los derechos de los pueblos indígenas en el contexto empresarial, y se explorará cómo podrían ponerse en práctica de manera efectiva. Este debate también se basará en el informe del IPRI y del IWGIA sobre los UNGPS y los pueblos indígenas: avances logrados, la brecha en la implementación y los desafíos para la próxima década, y la sesión sobre los pueblos indígenas de los foros regionales (incluyendo el foro regional de America Latina y el Caribe).
