Ethnic Minorities and Indigenious People

ODL Indigeous Data Sovereignty: Data literacy training and information dissemination

Resource Type:
Data, Surveys, Fact Sheets


Title: Ethnic minorities and indigenous people

Datasets made available through the program

Notes: Considerable challenges were met during this project that hindered engagement of civil society actors. Chiefly the lack of recognition of indigenous people by the State hindered approval of partner activities. The initial intent was to host 4 training workshops however only 1 organisation was able to gain approval for this activity. 

Regardless content generated on IEM communities was one of the most popular components of the Laos platform, specifically the maps and data presenting ethnic-linguistic groups. However, people still expressed language barriers which hinders comprehension. ODL is available in Latian and English only.
