Extractive industries

FPP works closely with local communities and indigenous peoples’ organisations to support them in their struggles against destructive development projects. We promote the direct involvement of affected communities in discussions with the private sector to ensure that ‘best practice’ industry standards on forestry, plantations, dams, palm oil and logging respect the rights of indigenous and forest peoples to their customary lands and to Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) about industry actions that affect them.
