Operational Policy on Indigenous Peoples, Inter-American Development Bank, 2006

This Strategy for Indigenous Development and its companion Operational Policy on Indigenous Peoples seek to enhance the Bank’s contribution to the development with identity of indigenous peoples by setting targets and specific priority areas for Bank action. The strategy is a medium-term guidance document that presents the vision, priorities, and lines of action for the Bank’s work. The operational policy is a binding document for the Bank and establishes the long-term objectives, principles, requirements, conditions, and rules for implementing the strategy and for Bank activities vis-à-vis indigenous peoples in general.
