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.
