The OECD project on Linking Indigenous Communities with Regional Development was launched on 19 September 2017 in Quebec City, Canada. The event involved representatives from Australia, Canada, Colombia, the European Commission, Peru, Sweden and the United States.
On 5 June 2018 the OECD and DG-MARE held a workshop on Indigenous Economic Development in the European Arctic in Brussels. The workshop included Indigenous representatives from Finland, Greenland, Norway, and Sweden, and representatives from the European Commission, and national and sub-national governments.
The project aims to develop policy recommendations for OECD Member countries (and non-Members that participating in the OECD Regional Development Policy Committee) to improve economic outcomes for indigenous communities by better linking them with regional development efforts.
The project will deliver a thematic report and a series of country case studies to identify evidence, good practice and recommendations to improve economic outcomes for indigenous communities in a regional context. A number of events and workshops will also be held to promote knowledge-sharing amongst policy makers and indigenous leaders.
