Indigenous peoples development

Indigenous peoples development programme (IPDP) Lake Sebu, South Cotabato, Mindanao: Final project fact sheet

The ILO extended its support to Tboli and Ubo people through a programme called "Support to Poverty Reduction and Production of Human Rights among the Indigenous Peoples (IPs) in the context of Ancestral Domain Development and Protection". In this Programme, the IPs are given the chance to develop their own capacity by taking greater responsibility for and leadership in their own development processes.

The Programme was designed to advance the IPs empowerment through a strategy that is based on the Indigenous Peoples’ Rights Act (IPRA) and the ILO Convention (No. 169) on Indigenous and Tribal Peoples. It integrates the four pillars of the ILO’s Decent Work Agenda: protection of fundamental rights, creation of employment opportunities, promotion of social security, and strengthening of mechanisms for social dialogue.
