Respecting free, prior and informed consent

Practical guidance for governments, companies, NGOs, indigenous peoples and local communities in relation to land acquisition
  Dec 01th, 2014

This technical guide sets out practical actions for government agencies, civil society organizations, land users and private investors globally to respect and comply with their responsibilities in relation to FPIC. It

• translates principles of responsible land governance and tenure (see the VGGT) into practical mechanisms, processes and actions,

• gives examples of good practice – what has worked, where, why and how, and

• provides useful tools for activities such as the design of policy and reform processes, for the design of investment projects and for guiding interventions.
