Free, Prior, and Informed Consent (FPIC) is the principle that a community has the right to give its consent to proposed projects that may affect their lands, resources, livelihoods, and communities. This principle is protected by international human rights law as “all peoples have the right to self-determination” and “all peoples have the right to freely pursue their economic, social, and cultural development.” It is enshrined in the International Labour Organization Convention 169 and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
