Development and Indigenous Peoples in Africa

This Issues Paper on Development and Indigenous Peoples in Africa has been prepared by the Compliance and Safeguards Division of the African Development Bank to give an overview of the state of Indigenous People in Africa, highlighting the options for their inclusion by the Bank in development projects the Bank undertakes in its Regional Member Countries (RMCs).

In performing this assignment, the study team greatly utilized knowledge, information and feedback from a wide range of stakeholders across the continent - governments, civil society organizations, the African Union Working Group on Indigenous Populations/Communities in Africa, which helped the team to draw scenarios, analyze case studies, compare situations and draw conclusions for the report.
