Description This report describes the current attitudes towards FPIC among extractive industries, assesses challenges business encounter in implementing FPIC, and outlines the key tools and practices that companies can use to develop relationships with Indigenous peoples and implement FPIC. Consent is framed as an iterative, multi-layered, ongoing process of consultation, rather than a one-time seal of approval.
