The sixth global meeting of the Indigenous Peoples' Forum at IFAD, taking place on 9, 10 and 13 February 2023, will focus on Indigenous Peoples’ Climate Leadership: Community-based solutions to enhance resilience and biodiversity.
The Forum is a platform for meaningful dialogue where Indigenous Peoples’ representatives convey their concerns, requests and recommendations to improve the partnership with IFAD and the effectiveness of its engagement with Indigenous Peoples.
In preparation of the global meeting, regional and sub-regional consultation meetings took place throughout October and November 2022.
During the Forum global meeting, the winners of the IFAD Indigenous Peoples Awards will be announced. The Awards recognize the efforts and achievements of development projects that successfully engage with Indigenous Peoples living in rural areas.
