2011 > 20 Key Indicators > Law Recognising Right to Free Prior Informed Consent

Free, prior and informed consent (FPIC) is mentioned in the forest code and in the law on the fundamental principles related to the protection of the environment. FPIC is also increasingly recognised in new processes such as REDD. However, it is not yet seen in practice and communities are not aware of it due to the lack of implementing texts. An FPIC-specific law would allow it to be established clearly and would thereby guarantee communities’ rights in a stronger and clearer manner.
