Protocols for Prior Consultation Leading to Free, Prior and Informed Consent

These protocols on prior consultation leading to free, prior and informed consent are a “living document” outlining the rules and regulations governing Free, Prior and Informed Consent in the ancestral territories of the Black Communities of Northern Cauca, Colombia.

They are the product of multiple community workshops over several years. The kingdom of the Netherlands and the Embassy of Norway in Colombia funded activities towards disseminating and strengthening this document between 2015 and 2017. Available in Spanish only. 

For further information this earlier report also synthesises the outcomes of a two-year, innovative, peoples-driven project that brought together Indigenous and Afro-Descendent communities in Colombia whose gold-rich ancestral lands are coveted and threatened by outside actors. Available in English and Spanish.
