APRIL Included in The Forest Dialogue Report on Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC)
The Forests Dialogue (TFD), in collaboration with The Program on Forests (PROFOR) at the World Bank, has released a new report as part of its Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) initiative.
Towards Consent: Case Studies and Insights on Company-Community Agreements in Forest Landscapes takes an in-depth look at companies navigating issues of community consent and engagement in complex situations.
APRIL worked with TFD and the author to share lessons drawn from our specific experience in Pulau Padang, Riau (Page 50) and to help find practical ways to respect and implement a consent process in agreements involving forest resources.
