The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), a specialized agency of the United Nations, was established as an international financial institution in 1977 as one of the major outcomes of the 1974 World Food Conference. The Conference was organized in response to the food crises of the early 1970s that primarily affected the Sahelian countries of Africa.

The Asia Indigenous Peoples Pact (AIPP) is a regional organization founded in 1988 by indigenous peoples' movements. AIPP is committed to the cause of promoting and defending indigenous peoples' rights and human rights and articulating issues of relevance to indigenous peoples. At present, AIPP has 47 members from 14 countries in Asia with 14 National Formations, 15 Sub-national Formations and 18 Local Formations. Of this number, 6 are Indigenous Women's Organizations and 4 are Indigenous Youth Organizations.

Securing land and territorial rights that are people centred, gender just and age sensitive, provide an essential basis for indigenous peoples and local communities to contribute with nature-based solutions to Climate Change. The ILC- IFAD moderated roundtable discussion is aimed at influencing COP26 negotiations and raising the voice of indigenous peoples and local communities to demonstrate their contribution for countering the effect of climate change.
