What is the Indigenous Biocultural Exchange Fund?
The Indigenous Biocultural Exchange Fund provides financial assistance to an individual or organization to attend global biocultural events/exchanges or meetings of international significance which impacts the applicant’s home territory or region. This fund supports indigenous peoples and local communities to have a voice in the policies and forums that concern biocultural diversity at a global level.
*Note: The IBEX Fund is not in a position to disperse information about upcoming events or exchanges and does not host events. Individuals or organizations must apply for funding for a specific meeting or event that they have already chosen to attend.
