INDIGENOUS PEOPLES DEALING WITH THE PANDEMIC: SUCCESS AND CHALLENGES FROM AROUND THE WORLD
The WIBF 2021 Virtual event will hear from Indigenous peoples around the world and how they are dealing with the current pandemic situation. Some have prospered while others have incredible challenges. The forum provides an opportunity to connect and continue discussions on economic development with international partnerships; specifically, to lead and facilitate a greater capacity to build stronger economies for Indigenous Peoples and their communities. The Forum will concentrate on hearing the grassroots experiences, sharing best practises to overcome the pandemic and prosper despite the obstacles. Forum speakers will be from around the world, multi-sectors, and representatives who are on the ground making things happen during the pandemic.
