This diminishes their economic and durable-solution
prospects and increases their vulnerability.9
1 Kenya, 2009 Population and Housing Census Results, 31 August 2010, slides 34-35. (...) In the cases of both the Mawingu and the Pipeline
camps, the IDPs did not consider return to their places of origin to be a viable durable
solution due to the trauma and violence they had suffered.
2. (...) In this respect he underlines the compounded vulnerabilities that have affected these IDPs,
and in particular vulnerable groups, and the need to address their remaining protection,
assistance and durable-solution needs.

HUMAN RIGHTS AND INDIGENOUS ISSUES : REPORT OF THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON THE SITUATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS AND FUNDAMENTAL FREEDOMS OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES, RODOLFO STAVENHAGEN : ADDENDUM
Some First Nations have accepted this solution but others consider releasing their
constitutionally recognized and affirmed rights through a negotiated settlement as unacceptable.
(...) The Special Rapporteur agrees with the recommendation
made by RCAP that a possible solution could be the establishment of regional treaty
commissions and an Aboriginal lands and treaties tribunal.
(...) The parties involved
in the conflict are seeking a solution, but Mohawk leaders are understandably concerned.
REPORT OF THE INDEPENDENT EXPERT ON THE ISSUE OF HUMAN RIGHTS OBLIGATIONS RELATED TO ACCESS TO SAFE DRINKING WATER AND SANITATION, CATARINA DE ALBUQUERQUE :ADDENDUM
There are also massive disparities between urban and rural areas in levels of access
to water and sanitation. As mentioned above, 70 per cent of the poor in Egypt live in rural
areas. (...) Water quality problems persist for several reasons. First, as already mentioned,
water scarcity has a negative impact on water quality. (...) Similarly, concerns
were raised by several interlocutors that the Nile river cruises also fail to take their waste to
sewage treatment plants, but instead dump it in the Nile, which is the main source of
drinking water for the population of Egypt. As mentioned above, there is reportedly little
accountability for such pollution, although it is against the law.

VISIT TO SRI LANKA : REPORT OF THE SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR ON THE RIGHTS TO FREEDOM OF PEACEFUL ASSEMBLY AND OF ASSOCIATION
Indeed, during his visit, a large number of relevant interlocutors mentioned their
satisfaction with the Act; however, concerns were raised on a number of occasions, with
regard to the understanding of this right by right-to-information officers on provincial
20. (...) The Special Rapporteur considers, as mentioned in his end of mission statement,3
that a concerted effort must be put into the continued safeguarding and promotion of these
institutions, ensuring that they are sufficiently robust to maintain independence and
functionality throughout all democratic transitions. (...) Article 15 (7) of the Constitution places limits on these rights, in
line with those mentioned in article 21 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political
RPT SR CULTURAL RIGHTS - MISSION TO BIH
The Ministry of Civil Affairs provided funds to the above-mentioned seven
institutions until 2010. Institutional funding was replaced by project grants in 2012. (...) One obstacle frequently mentioned by interlocutors was the deep system-wide
politicization of education. (...) It reveals the failure of the competent authorities in Bosnia and
Herzegovina in the past 11 years to find a permanent, countrywide solution, which would
guarantee children’s equal rights to education”.21
NOTE VERBALE DATED 2009/03/26 FROM THE PERMANENT MISSION OF THE REPUBLIC OF TURKEY ADDRESSED TO THE OFFICE OF THE UNITED NATIONS HIGH COMMISSIONER FOR HUMAN RIGHTS
It is most disappointing that while your predecessor’s above-mentioned report as well as
Your Excellency’s report of 3 December 2007 (S/2007/699) dwelt on the unjust isolation of the
Turkish Cypriot people, a commensurate approach has not been taken in the present human
rights report. (...) In response, the Greek
Cypriot administration referred to the law 139/1991 which has been mentioned hereinabove.
We consider the reference to the construction sector in North Cyprus in paragraph 13 of
the Report to be inappropriate. (...) In 1 other case, the applicant agreed to restitution upon the
solution of the Cyprus problem and in the interim period, all constructions and other
developments on the properties have frozen.
REPORT OF THE WORKING GROUP ON ENFORCED OR INVOLUNTARY DISAPPEARANCES - MISSION TO CROATIA
The Working Group appreciates the fact that the Government of
Croatia transmitted all the documents it requested, including copies of legislation and statistical
data that were mentioned during the meetings with official authorities.
(...) In addition,
there is the possibility that the DNA samples match the blood samples from relatives of missing
persons from other countries in the region, given the above-mentioned lack of a joint regional
15. (...) The Working Group also notes that relatives claim that, although the above-mentioned
laws may not be discriminatory in principle, the way they are implemented may in practice
exclude some ethnic groups from the enjoyment of the rights stipulated in the laws.
