As governments, companies, non-governmental organizations and ethnic communities address increased investment in extractives in Colombia, critical questions arise on how to ensure policies and practices are more aligned with respecting the human rights enshrined in Colombian and international legal frameworks, particularly in the context of internal armed conflict.


The North-South Institute and our partners in Colombia, Proceso de Comunidades Negras, a national Afro-Colombian organization, and the Resguardo Indígena Cañamomo Lomaprieta, an Indigenous Reserve representing 32 Embera Chamí communities in Caldas, are pleased to announce the publication of several documents related to our 30-month collaborative project titled, "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."  The project was led by Viviane Weitzner, former Senior Researcher, Governance and Natural Resources, The North-South Institute.
