Learning & Early Discussions Checklist

 Step One: Identify Relevant IPLCs

  Desk research, expert interviews and field interviews

  • Geographical analysis with upstream/downstream impacts
  • Temporal or historical analysis
  • Resource use analysis, including seasonal use
  • Other impact analysis, especially if the project is not place-based, for example, an overarching strategy or a national policy initiative (see also Human Rights Impact Assessment in FPIC Module)
  • In addition to environmental impacts, consideration of legal, social, health, subsistence, political, economic, spiritual and cultural impacts

  Cross-check identification results as part of initial contacts with IPLC

  Analysis of competing IPLC claims or interests

  Analysis of IPLC claims or interests disputed by government or other authorities

Step Two: Develop an Engagement Plan

  Consider TNC team capacity, including language, cultural experience, training needs

  Consider existing or established IPLC engagement processes

  Solicit and defer to IPLC preferences on Engagement Plan options. Assess if there’s sufficient cooperation to proceed

  • Preliminary Inclusion analysis

  Documentation (see “Documentation to Save” below)

Step Three: Begin Initial Engagement & Dialogue

  Continuous development and adaptation of the Engagement Plan

  Co-learning – TNC learns about the IPLC and introduces itself to the IPLC

  Continuous development of dialogue objectives

  Data sharing and the consideration of limits, conditions and parameters on data
