National capacity-building for intercultural conflict prevention and management in Chile
This Joint Programme's aim was to address the existing conflict between the Indigenous Peoples and Chilean Society. These problems stem from the historic process of expropriation of the land and natural resources of indigenous people, marginalisation and poverty, the difficulties of implementing public development policies and the implementation of large-scale investment projects in areas where the majority population is of indigenous origin. The Joint Programme supported national and local capacity-building efforts aimed at managing ongoing conflicts and preventing the emergence of any new trouble spots.
