This policy brief synthesizes the policy directions and recommendations emerging from a 30-month collaborative project between The North-South Institute (Canada), Proceso de Comunidades Negras (a national Colombian organization), and the Resguardo Indígena Cañamomo Lomaprieta (an Indigenous Reserve comprising 32 Embera Chamí communities in Caldas, Colombia). The participatory action research project was entitled “Towards the Development of Standards and Mechanisms to protect Ethnic Peoples Affected by Extractives: Implementing Free, Prior and Informed consent and prior consultation in the context of the Colombian armed conflict.”
