IWGIA’s Africa program strategy was adopted in April 2004. Its thematic priorities are human rights, land rights, indigenous women’s rights, self-organization and empowerment. Geographically, IWGIA focuses on East Africa (mainly Kenya, Tanzania), Central Africa (mainly Rwanda, Burundi, Republic of Congo), and southern Africa (e.g. Botswana). Its key project partners are the Mainyoito Pastoralist Integrated Development Organization (MPIDO, Kenya), the Indigenous Movement for Peace Advancement and Conflict Transformation (IMPACT, Kenya), Community Research and Development Services (CORDS, Tanzania), Unissons-Nous pour la Promotion des Batwa (UNIPROBA, Burundi) and the Communauté des Potiers du Rwanda (COPORWA, Rwanda). IWGIA also works with non-indigenous support NGOs such as the Centre for Minority Rights Development (CEMIRIDE, Kenya) and the Association pour les Droits de l’Homme et l’Univers Carcéral (ADHUC, Republic of Congo).
