The Forum for development cooperation with indigenous peoples is a meeting place for indigenous peoples, indigenous people’s organisations, researchers, development workers and managers engaged in North-South cooperation on development. The Forum works to strengthen the attention to indigenous people’s issues in aspects of Norwegian development assistance. It was established by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 2000 and has through the annual conferences focused on a variety of issue, with a cross-cutting theme on how national, bilateral and multilateral policies, actions and practices contribute to the capacity and capability of indigenous peoples to exercise their right to development.
