The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) is inviting indigenous peoples’ organizations and communities, and organizations that work with them, to apply for grants that fund projects and partnerships to promote the development of indigenous peoples and their unique cultural identity.
Grants ranging from US$20,000 to US$50,000 will be awarded to applicants from IFAD’s developing Member States through the Indigenous Peoples Assistance Facility (IPAF).
You can find more information on application requirements and an application form at http://www.ifad.org/english/indigenous/grants/index.htm
The closing date for applications is 31 August 2011. IFAD will not accept applications after that date.
