Indigenous Peoples Awards
The IFAD Indigenous Peoples Awards recognize the efforts and achievements of development projects that successfully engage with Indigenous Peoples living in rural areas. The Awards help promote best practices, share knowledge and identify opportunities to replicate and scale-up results.
The nominations fall into three categories: best performing IFAD-funded project, best performing IPAF-funded project and best performing non-IFAD-funded project. The winners, selected by Forum Steering Committee members, will be announced on 15 February.
