Cameroon FPIC Training Materials: 'Communities in Control'

This suite of training materials has been developed for communities in Cameroon to help increase awareness of the key principles surrounding free, prior and informed consent (FPIC) and to improve the implementation of these principles in practice.

‘Free, Prior and Informed Consent’ Posters

As part of its project on ‘REDD financing, Human Rights and Economic Development for Sustainable Poverty Reduction of Forest Communities in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)’ Forest Peoples Programme (FPP) and partners in the DRC: Actions pour les Droits, l’Environnement et la Vie (ADEV), le Centre d’Accompagnement des Autochtones Pygmées et Minoritaires Vulnérables (CAMV), le Cercle pour la Défense de l’Environnement (CEDEN) and le Réseau pour la Conservation et la Réhabilitation des Écosystèmes Forestiers (Réseau CREF) have developed a set of posters on the right to free, prior and informed consent (FPIC). By combining pictures and short pieces of text, the posters depict the stages of a process that respects the rights of indigenous peoples and local communities to free, prior and informed consent with regard to projects likely to affect their lands, territories and natural resources.

Poster ‘Keputusan Bebas, Didahulukan dan Diinformasikan”

Sebagai bagian dari proyek ‘Pembiayaan REDD, Hak Asasi Manusia dan Pembangunan Ekonomi untuk Pengentasan Kemiskinan Masyarakat Hutan Berkelanjutan di Republik Demokratik Kongo (RDK)’, Forest Peoples Programme (FPP) dan para mitra di RDK, yaitu Actions pour les Droits, l ‘Environnement et la Vie (ADEV), le Centre d’Accompagnement des Autochtones pygmées et Minoritaires Vulnérables (CAMV), le Cercle pour la Défense de l’Environnement (CEDEN) dan le Réseau pour la Konservasi et la rehabilitasi des Écosystèmes Forestiers (Réseau CREF) telah mengembangkan satu set poster tentang hak atas keputusan bebas, didahulukan dan diinformasikan (KBDD/FPIC). Dengan menggabungkan gambar-gambar dan potongan-potongan pendek teks, poster-poster tersebut menggambarkan tahapan proses yang menghormati hak-hak masyarakat adat dan komunitas lokal atas keputusan bebas, didahulukan dan diinformasikan berkaitan dengan proyek-proyek yang mungkin mempengaruhi tanah, wilayah dan sumber daya alam mereka.

Free, Prior, and Informed Consent in REDD+: Principles and Approaches for Policy and Project Development

The principle that indigenous peoples and local communities have a right to give or withhold their Free, Prior, and Informed Consent (FPIC) to developments affecting their resources is not new. However, experience using FPIC in REDD+ implementation is still limited in the Asia-Pacific region. Using relevant examples from a range of locations and sectors, this manual provides a basis for developing country-specific guidance on employing FPIC in REDD+ processes.
