Community Development & Livelihoods

People living near a project site can face both positive and negative economic impacts. Opportunities lie in local hiring and procurement practices as well as the multiplier effect of increased economic activity in the area. Risks lie in possible economic displacement and other challenges. We work with projects and local partners to restore or improve livelihoods, diversify incomes and maximize economic opportunities. We also develop Community Investment Plans that focus on aligning company and community needs and partnership-based, participatory programs.
