The Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues will meet for its seventeenth session on 16-27 April 2018.

The Forum members have decided on changes to the two week annual session.  The first week will be all open plenary meetings.  There will be no closed meetings during the first week.

A condensed schedule during the first week will see the Permanent Forum discuss all substantive agenda items.

The second week will consist of closed meetings of the PFII members, with the adoption of the report on the final day.

During the second week, Members of the Permanent Forum will engage in closed meetings with indigenous peoples, Member States and UN entities as well as to prepare the Forum’s annual report, carefully considering information provided during the first week.
