This day is particularly aimed at corporate, regional and site communities and social performance practitioners and managers, and presents the big-picture understanding of how the world for extractive business has changed and how we need to react to this.
Days Two and Three
We look at solutions here: what has worked in the extractive sectors? Case studies and good practice examples will be presented including on stakeholder engagement, agreement-making, grievance management, monitoring and reporting, local procurement, social investment, integrating social performance into your operation and the benefits of partnerships. The aim is to obtain and nurture the social license to operate as a competitive advantage.
Good social performance is no longer about the ‘soft side’ of donations, sponsorships or community development contributions. It can be approached with the same professionalism and rigor as the engineering, finance or geology aspects. This course will focus on how this can be done.
You will walk away from the course with a better understanding of why so many extractive projects have problems, a knowledge of global good practice through select case studies and a set of tools for practical implementation.
