The consultations on Indigenous Peoples safeguard will focus on implementation challenges faced by stakeholders in the application of the SPS. Following an evaluation of the SPS by ADB’s Independent Evaluation Department, key areas that are being considered in the review of Indigenous Peoples safeguard include: (i) ADB’s approach to targeting and engaging with Indigenous Peoples in project identification and design; (ii) identification of Indigenous Peoples in project areas that will trigger ADB’s safeguard requirements; (iii) improving social impact assessments, (iv) adopting an integrated approach on safeguard risk assessment and finding interlinkages between safeguard for Indigenous Peoples with other safeguard areas/standards; and (v) adoption of free, prior and informed consent.
