http://www.Conservation.org/FPIC Mina Setra is a Dayak from Indonesia. Her case study analyzed the use of FPIC in the East Flores District as a mechanism for achieving a more democratic land management scheme following the state government's establishment of a protected area in 1984, which was created without obtaining consent of the local Lewolema people. In this instance, the FPIC process created an opportunity for dialogue that fulfilled the regional government's needs, while also granting rights to the indigenous peoples over their territory. She is the Deputy of Advocacy, Law and Politics at AMAN, the indigenous peoples' alliance network of Indonesia.
