Inter-Agency Consultation on Race in Latin America (IAC)

The Inter-Agency Consultation on Race in Latin America (IAC), established in the year 2000, is a consultative group of international development institutions that are working to address issues of race discrimination, social exclusion, and other problems of Afro-descendant populations in Latin America.

The IAC was designed to assure that participating institutions are well informed about each others' programs and plans; allow its participants to share information and analyses about the situation of Latin Americans of African descent; conduct joint activities of mutual interest; launch independent activities that reinforce and enrich the work of participating organizations; and maintain a dialogue with Afro-Latin American leaders and institutions in the region. The IAC can help these groups access opportunities to get their ideas and proposals into policy debates and in the agendas of development institutions.
