Oxfam in Kenya has just launched a new report today: Testing Community Consent: Tullow Oil project in Kenya. The study looks at implementation of the Free, Prior and Informed Consent (FPIC) standard for the Tullow Oil project in Turkana, Kenya. FPIC is a requirement for this project thanks to an IFC loan to Tullow’s partner Africa Oil.
