Forest Peoples Programme becomes 109th member of the CBFP - Welcome to our new partner
FPP is a British and Dutch human rights NGO founded in 1990, that works with forest peoples (and particularly indigenous peoples) around the tropical forest belt. FPP’s mission is to support the rights of people who live in forests and depend on them for their livelihoods. FPP works to create political space for forest peoples to secure their rights, control their lands and decide their own futures.
FPP has been working in the Congo Basin for more than 15 years. It has a large programme within the region, notably in Cameroon, Central African Republic (CAR), Republic of Congo (RoC) and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), where the organisation works together with local civil society partners to support forest communities.
FPP receives funding for its Congo Basin work from a number of major institutional donors (including DfID (UK), the EU and SIDA (Sweden)), and its current projects focus on several themes, including improving local community governance and inclusive participation, supporting community-based monitoring of and advocacy in relation to lands and territories, community forestry, disaggregated data collection in relation to indigenous peoples, applying free, prior and informed consent, accountability within commodity chains, and human rights-based conservation and climate policies. FPP’s activities in the region have a significant community-based component; FPP (and local communities with whom FPP works) also engage with governments and local civil society, as well as private actors and companies (including forestry, safari, mining and agribusiness companies as well as conservation actors).
FPP’s core programme of activities in the Congo Basin take place within the Nola-Bayanga and Lobaye areas of CAR; the East and South regions of Cameroon; the Sangha department in RoC; and the provinces of Equateur, North and South Kivu, Ituri, Kongo-Central, Mai-Ndombe, Kasai-Central and Lomami in DRC. FPP’s work also involves linking these local activities to regional and international processes, through e.g. international and regional human rights bodies and mechanisms, international indigenous peoples’ advocacy movements, policy dialogues spaces (such as the CBFP) and other tools.
The CBFP Facilitation of the Kingdom of Belgium is very pleased to welcome Forest Peoples Programme.
