The Indigenous Peoples of Africa Co-ordinating Committee (IPACC) is a network of 150 indigenous peoples’ organisations in 20 African countries. It is a membership organisation. Any legitimate organisation composed of African indigenous peoples is welcome to apply for membership. Other associations working in development, human or indigenous rights may apply for associate (non-voting) membership. Members elect an Executive Committee representing six geographic and cultural regions in Africa including a special regional representative of indigenous women. IPACC is accredited with the UN Economic and Social Council, the UN Environment Programme, the Global Environment Facility, UNESCO and the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights.
Ipacc is participating in the IUCN World Conservation Congress.
