All AFV projects are implemented following Free Prior and Informed Consent meetings (FPIC) with the local communities. The indigenous communities are thus empowered to decide on the projects they wish to prioritize and the conditions under which they will be implemented. It is not only the right to be consulted, but a guarantee that the economic, social and cultural rights of the indigenous people will be protected and promoted.
The main objective of AFV is to promote and defend biodiversity in tropical rainforests, their indigenous people and their ancestral cultures. AFV advocates for the recognition of the right of the First People to ensure the good management and defense of their habitat.
