(New Publication) Comic Book: Rights in Action-Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) for Indigenous Peoples


Free, Prior and Informed Consent is a mechanism and a process wherein indigenous peoples undertake their collective decision on matters that affects them, as an exercise of their right to their land, territories and resources, their right to self-determination and to cultural integrity.

FPIC is an iterative process that should be undertaken in good faith to ensure mutual respect and meaningful participation of indigenous peoples in decision-making on matters affecting them. It requires the conduct of a series of consultations, dialogues, exchanges, and interactions between indigenous peoples and those requiring their consent and agreeement for the entire cycle of a project from planning, implementation and monitoring. Thus FPIC should ensure the full and effective participation of indigenous peoples in all project-related process that affect them.
