The objective of this session will be to strategize an ongoing plan which leads to the goal of Cambodia-Lao-Vietnam (CLV) indigenous and ethnic minorities (IEM) groups being able to use datasets they collect to generated evidence-based driven advocacy to drive change on issues affecting them within increasingly constrained environments. The session is designed to look for ways in which data discovery and sharing is conducted with and for communities instead of on them. We envision participants coming together to discuss their experiences and approaches for moving forward. Discussions around responsible data and free, prior and informed consent are also fundamental to ensure data protection of IEM groups and their right to data sovereignty. The session’s format will interactively engage participants to identify priority areas including: land grabbing, land concession development such as large scale plantations, mining and hydropower, human trafficking and migration, environmental protection, and food security threats, health and sanitation. The session will be structured in focus group discussions with backstop support and key responsibilities for facilitation will be provided to participants. Participants will be asked to prepare approaches to how they would communicate data and information collected to audiences back in their local context using low tech approaches.
