About the event

The Global Meeting of the Indigenous Peoples’ Forum convenes every other year in conjunction with IFAD’s Governing Council. In preparation for each Global Meeting, regional workshops are organized to ensure that the Forum reflects the diversity of perspectives and recommendations gathered from indigenous peoples in the various regions. A unique process within the United Nations system, the Forum institutionalizes IFAD’s consultation and dialogue with indigenous peoples’ representatives at the national, regional and international levels. 
The third global meeting of the Indigenous Peoples' Forum at IFAD will take place in Rome on 10 and 13 February 2017 and will focus on economic empowerment of indigenous peoples, particularly women and youth.

The Forum provides an opportunity for indigenous peoples and IFAD staff to analyse and learn from previous experiences, and further strengthen their collaboration for rural transformation. The 2017 Forum coincides with the 10th anniversary of the adoption of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP). The Forum will highlight IFAD’s engagement with indigenous peoples during the past decade, and brainstorm on future opportunities to improve this work within the 2030 Development Agenda.
