Observatoire Congolaise des Droits de l'Homme

In ROC, OCDH, with the supporting of the Rainforest Foundation, UK (under funding from DFID) has supported the process of developing legislation to specifically recognized the rights of inidgenous peoples in the Republic of Congo by developing the draft provisions and facilitating the participation/consultation of indigenous peoples. As of October 2006, OCDH has been involved in taking the draft provision out to community members for comment, input and amendment, but is facing constraints presented by what is a relatively short time frame. OCDH, with the support of Rainforest Foundation, is one of the leading national NGOs in the Republic of Congo in the area of human rights and indigenous peoples issues and published a series of excellent reports of the last year documenting the drafting process and human rights issues related to indigenous peoples.
