Indigenous Peoples are invaluable partners in solving many of today's complex problems, such as climate change, biodiversity preservation, and sustainable management of natural resources. Its Peoples constitute the world's largest minority encompassing more than 475 million people in over 90 countries -- around 6 per cent of the global population. Indigenous territories cover almost a quarter of the world's land surface and 80 per cent of the earth's global biodiversity. As the philanthropy world begins to recognise that support and funding for the self-determination efforts led by Indigenous Peoples are critical, this ground-breaking special feature will discuss effective ways to partner with Indigenous Peoples and place Indigenous values at the heart of philanthropic practice.
