KLMPE 20016 Policy Brief 1c
INDIGENOUS PEOPLES RIGHTS ACT
The More Things Change, the More They Remain the Same
Seventeen years hence, indigenous peoples still suffer the same problems and development barriers prior to the passing of Indigenous Peoples Rights Act (IPRA) in 1997. Working to secure the rights of indigenous peoples to their lands, and promoting their traditional indigenous farming methods would contribute to the development of more diversified and resilient agricultural systems. This would be a major step towards eradication of poverty and hunger among indigenous family farmers and communities.
