The aim of the Awards is to recognize the efforts and the achievements of development projects that successfully engage with indigenous peoples or ethnic minorities living in rural areas.
The purpose is to promote best practices of engagement, share knowledge and lessons learned and identify opportunities to replicate and scale-up results. The awarded projects will gain visibility and recognition throughout IFAD and its network of partners. The prizes will be delivered to representatives of indigenous peoples or ethnic minorities from the awarded projects.
The Awards will be delivered in a knowledge-sharing session within the fifth global meeting of the Indigenous Peoples’ Forum at IFAD in February 2021.
