Describe the main features of the measure/initiative:
SERVINDI is organized as a non-profit civil association that provides an intercultural information and communication service in order for national and international society to have a better understanding of the reality, needs and aspirations of indigenous peoples and communities. This independent informative service reflects a critical and thoughtful opinion through news, special reports, interviews and audiovisual productions. SERVINDI's purpose is to strengthen the leading role of indigenous peoples and communities, as well as the one of their representative organizations through the dissemination of their problems, actions, proposals and the local, national, regional and global indigenous agenda, thus supporting the freedom and diversity of the information and communication media.
What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the measure/initiative?:
SERVINDI's main results focus on publishing pedagogical materials, which especially address issues that do not receive enough attention from the organizations themselves. So far, we have six publications: 1) Indigenous Peoples, the FTAA and FTAs (Training Manual); 2) Interculturality: Challenge and process under construction (Training Manual); 3) Indigenous Communication and Communicators (Training Manual); 4) Right to Communication: Reality and challenges in Latin America: Indigenous Peoples and public broadcasting policies; 5) Communicating climate change from an intercultural approach (Training Manual); and 6) Territorial Rights of Indigenous Peoples and Communities (Illustrated Primer).
