This is the second edition of PRO 169's electronic newsletter. Since the first edition in June 2009, there have been a number of developments within the programme including the initiation of activities in Central America and
Bangladesh; organisation of various seminars and training programmes at
Headquarters; new publications and further expansion of existing websites. PRO 169 has also undergone an external evaluation by three indigenous experts. In collaboration with the OHCHR, PRO 169 organised the celebration of the International Day of the World's Indigenous Peoples in Geneva.
