This community-friendly animation video explains the concepts and mechanisms of Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) through a story of interaction between indigenous peoples and people requesting their consent for new development.
Free, Prior and Informed Consent is a core principle of the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, to guide collective decision-making.
FPIC is a continual process that involves mutual respect and meaningful participation of indigenous peoples in decision-making on matters affecting them.
The video also includes a story about customary law in the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
