Reports

Nuestro Territorio, Nuestra Lucha I and Nuestro Territorio, Nuestra Lucha IIare documents produced by the Palenke Alto Cauca, the traditional governance body of Black Communities in Northern Cauca (represented nationally by Proceso de Comunidades Negras-PCN), outlining the key challenges and perspectives of Afro-Descendant communities in Northern Cauca around territorial threats.

They synthesise key moments in a two-year project (2015-2017) entitled “Towards the Development of Standards and Mechanisms to Protect Ethnic Peoples Affected by Extractives (Phase II): Consolidating strategies for territorial control by implementing the rights to free, prior and informed consultation and consent in the Palenke Alto Cauca and the Resguardo Indígena Cañamomo Lomaprieta through inter-ethnic and international alliances.” This project was funded by the Kingdom of the Netherlands, and the Embassy of Norway in Colombia. The reports are 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.
