Oxfam and civil society allies from Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria and Peru will host a global peer learning session on FPIC which seeks to provide participants at this year’s GA with an overview of the opportunities and challenges around FPIC advocacy work to date in the Africa region and beyond. The session will be dynamic and interactive, allowing for participants to share their stories.
The session will offer participants a general overview of FPIC strategies employed by Oxfam and partners at the global, regional and national level, and will provide a space for participants to examine the barriers with which they have been faced in working to promote FPIC implementation in practice. The session will include time for group exploration of strategic approaches to promoting FPIC when consultation and consent provisions in law are weak and/ or non-existent at the national level.
