“We understand the importance of establishing dialogue and building strong relationships…”
The importance of effective stakeholder and community engagement in the planning and implementation of projects, necessitates an understanding of dealing with host communities and key stakeholders, particularly those who represent a perceived threat or indeed can act as champions to your project. This can often be dilemma for project managers and failure to get it right can be costly in terms of public controversy, delayed or abandoned projects. Not involving communities in project development can have serious long-term negative impacts on a community’s economic, environmental, and social outcomes.
