The Free, Prior and Informed Consent Advantage: Action for empowerment in Latin America
For IFAD, FPIC represents a proactive approach to shaping development pathways with local communities and goes beyond consent.
IFAD-funded projects are people-centred therefore, FPIC is a process of dialogue and consultation, rather than simply a safeguarding principle; it is a proactive approach to identifying development pathways with local communities.
This publication explores how FPIC is solicited through consultation and the participation of communities and local institutions at specific stages of the project cycle.
