This chapter examines the role of free, prior, and informed consent (FPIC) in obtaining the support of indigenous peoples, specifically those in Latin America. New technology and geopolitical considerations make Latin America, with its vastly unexplored and unexploited geography, an ideal candidate to expand the frontiers of energy resource development. This chapter shows that, while sustainable energy development in indigenous lands can be a win-win proposition, cutting corners on FPIC is not the way about it. The parties’ commitment to the FPIC process and, most of all, their willingness to spend time and resources to determine who must be included in the FPIC community above and beyond any efforts required to comply with the law, may be the key to unlocking resources in indigenous territories.
