This Resource Guide by Conservation International is a tool for Indigenous communities to operationalise their right to FPIC and to effectively engage in negotiations when they choose to do so.
The Guide includes a collection of best practices, lessons learned, and case studies to assist Indigenous negotiators at all stages of a negotiation.
Chapters describe the technical aspects of negotiated agreements, while emphasizing a community’s right to decide throughout all stages of a negotiation.
Some negotiators may benefit from reading the complete Guide.
For others, certain chapters will be more relevant, depending on the stage of a negotiation, a community’s experience with previous negotiations, the strength of a community’s traditional governance processes, or the sector with which the community is engaging in negotiations.
