IWGIA's focus areas
We focus on defending indigenous peoples’ land rights, promoting inclusion in climate action and participation in local and international decision-making processes.
Our ambition is that by 2030 we have a world where systematic discrimination is no longer tolerated, where indigenous peoples’ rights are respected and their knowledge valued in climate change and conservation actions, and where indigenous peoples determine the future of their land.
IWGIA empowers indigenous peoples to operationalise territorial self-governance and advocate for securing their land rights.
IWGIA promotes the inclusion of indigenous peoples in global, national and local climate action.
