The IPPP is a pilot program that supports the developmental priorities of Indigenous peoples in the Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region. This responsive program provides opportunities to create durable partnerships and supports initiatives conceived both by indigenous organizations in the LAC region and their Canadian Aboriginal partners. These partnerships contribute to the sustainable development of Indigenous peoples in the LAC region through an exchange of knowledge, experience, expertise, and existing models.
