Free, prior, and informed consent in REDD+: principles and approaches for policy and project development

This publication is aimed at those concerned with the design and implementation of REDD+ projects or programmes. The audience includes independent community facilitators or advisors; indigenous and local community leaders; local government staff; project staff/liaison officers; private sector investors; and NGO facilitators, advocates and activists. Divided into three main sections: 1. an overview of REDD+ and the importance of Free, Prior, and Informed Consent (FPIC); 2. a quick reference section that describes the development of a process that respects FPIC and summarises key information; 3. a guidelines section which provides more detailed information on twelve aspects or ‘elements’ of a generic process to respect the right of indigenous peoples and local communities to FPIC.
