Indigenous-led Development in Action
One model of self-determined economic development is the Larrakia Declaration on the Development of Indigenous Tourism. The Larrakia Declaration, which recognizes the Declaration as a foundational document, outlines a series of principles that support the development of indigenous tourism. Building on the Larrakia Declaration, the World Indigenous Tourism Alliance has developed checklists, best practices, guidelines, and other tools for the international tourism industry to ensure they are respecting the human rights of indigenous peoples. This model can be replicated across various sectors to create industry-specific guidelines and tools that are defined by and respect the rights of indigenous peoples.
