As large-scale oil, gas, and mining projects move to increasingly remote areas, they threaten to generate adverse impacts for the local communities and indigenous peoples that inhabit these areas. For many project-affected communities, Free, Prior, and Informed Consent (FPIC) represents a critical tool for ensuring that they have a say in whether and how extractive industry projects move forward. 

Oxfam's report examines publicly available corporate commitments regarding community rights and community engagement with a particular focus on FPIC - the gold standard in terms of extractive industry community engagement practices. It aims to highlight changing trends across the industry in order to encourage a race to the top among companies.
