About the Indigenous Learning Platform
What is the Indigenous Learning Platform?
The Indigenous Learning Platform collects information for and about Indigenous Peoples in one place for social learning. This platform is a contribution of the Indigenous Peoples Alliance for Rights and Development (IPARD) Program implemented by the FSC-Indigenous Foundation.
The Indigenous Learning Platform contains information in many languages and promotes exchange for knowledge and connections.
It is a Global Indigenous Peoples Data Repository for Indigenous Peoples and their organizations, national-level government officials, civil society and donor organizations, development agencies, private sector, academia, university researchers, media, journalists and the general public who is interested in Indigenous Peoples wellbeing.
The Indigenous Learning Platform’s aim is:
- To be a reference for information about and for Indigenous Peoples around the world.
- To facilitate social learning and knowledge, systematization and sharing.
- To create linkages amongst Indigenous Peoples and stakeholders at sub-national, national, regional and global levels and allow identification of partnership, collaboration, interaction, and connection.
- To allow decision-making thanks to business intelligence and monitoring, evaluation and learning data.
- To share business opportunities.
- To be an interactive platform that displays links to resources and documents generated by the IPARD Program, the FSC-IF and all other organizations at the global level.
