Miscellaneous Information:

The Indigenous Peoples’ Foundation for Education and Environment (IPF) is an indigenous peoples’ organisation founded on in 2005 in Thailand by indigenous leaders with support from local academia. Its main aim is to promote indigenous peoples' rights on various issues. These include, but are not limited to, indigenous peoples’ education, self-determined development and customary land use and natural resource management.

IPF works with Karen, Hmong, Mien, Lisu, Lahu, and Akha and other indigenous peoples in Thailand. Experiences gained by indigenous peoples in Thailand are being shared with other indigenous groups in the Greater Mekong Sub-region (GMS); such as Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam.
