Field Dialogue on FPIC in the Democratic Republic of Congo

21 - 25 May 2012
TFD Dialogue in DRC on free, prior and informed consent

This Dialogue complemented the lessons learned from the FPIC Field Dialogue that took place in Indonesia in 2010.  The dialogue brought together over 100 participants from a great variety of backgrounds including indigenous peoples, local communities, non-governmental organizations, development agencies, government bodies and the private sector.  The dialogue focused on how the right to FPIC should be respected in the national program to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD) and it was authorized and sponsored by the Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Tourism.

TFD's DRC FPIC Dialogue was co-organized by Forests Peoples Programme and sponsored by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA).
