This toolkit provides guidance on how to apply safeguards for indigenous peoples in development projects, specifically projects in the agriculture and natural resource management sector. It is targeted in particular at the officials of government agencies, above all those agencies which execute or implement projects financed by international organizations such as ADB.

The toolkit has been prepared as part of a regional technical assistance project undertaken by ADB, on Targeted Capacity Building for Mainstreaming Indigenous Peoples Concerns in Development. It complements a more generic training manual, destined for use by all government officials, on ways to apply safeguards for indigenous peoples in all development projects.
