International Alliance of Indigenous and Tribal Peoples of the Tropical Forests (IAITPTF)

The International Alliance of Indigenous and Tribal Peoples of the Tropical Forests (IAITPTF) is a worldwide network of organisations representing indigenous and tribal peoples living in tropical forest regions (Africa, the Asia-Pacific and the Americas). The Alliance was founded in 1992 during an indigenous conference in Malaysia, where the Charter of the Alliance was adopted, and has been fighting continuously for the rights of indigenous and tribal peoples ever since.
The work of the Alliance is divided into regional capacity building and training programmes, and the work of monitoring and participating in international policy processes impacting on indigenous and tribal peoples.
