Law on indigenous peoples' rights adopted in the Republic of Congo

On the 30th December 2010 the Parliament adopted a law for the promotion and protection of the rights of indigenous peoples in the Republic of Congo. This law is the first of its kind in Africa, and its adoption is a historic development for indigenous peoples on the continent. Hopefully this law will be a valuable tool for improving the situation of the indigenous peoples in the Congo and a source of inspiration for other countries in Africa to take similar initiatives.
