Indigenous Biocultural Exchange Fund 2019 (1)

The Indigenous Biocultural Exchange (IBEX) provides financial assistance to a person to attend a global biocultural event or forum of international importance that affects their territory or region of origin.

The IBEX approach examines biocultural problems: the interweaving of people and places, rich culture and ecology, but neglected. IBEX supports indigenous peoples and local communities to have a voice in policies and forums dealing with biocultural diversity worldwide (for example, in relation to the UNDRIP and other UN conventions, such as the Right to Food and the Convention on Biological Diversity).

IBEX Biocultural Exchange Fund aims to encourage an active and participatory exchange of knowledge systems, especially for, but not limited to, individuals in the following regions: the African Rift Valley, Central Asia and Turkey, the southwestern United States. UU And northern Mexico, northern Australia and Melanesia.

Of special interest are indigenous peoples and local communities that have traditionally been underrepresented in biocultural events, including, among others, women, young people and people who travel for the first time.
