FAO Policy on Indigenous and Tribal Peoples

FAO Policy on Indigenous and Tribal People

The central purpose of this policy paper is to provide a framework to guide FAO’s work where indigenous peoples are concerned. It gives information about indigenous peoples’ livelihoods, world views and concerns about development, including certain “core principles” which should be at the heart of joint activities. The policy also defines a series of thematic areas where collaborative opportunities are most feasible. At the same time, a number of mechanisms are suggested that will allow cooperation with indigenous peoples to move forward in a more systematic way.
