Event Description

The Community Relations Practice in the Extractive Industry programme has been developed in partnership by Synergy Global and the Centre for Sustainability in Mining and Industry at the University of Witwatersrand, with support from Anglo Gold Ashanti, Anglo American, and Xstrata.

 

This exciting educational programme seeks to address the critical need for capacity and professional skills in community relations within the industry. It is aimed at professionals within Africa from extractive industry operations, governments, NGOs, community based organisations and more. The programme consists of 4 short courses, which can be attended individually or as a comprehensive programme. We have departed from “death by powerpoint” to create innovative training formats that include role play, case studies, external expert panels, and video footage analysis to make any learning readily applicable in real work situations. We also host public evening events during the course where high profile industry, government, media and community persons share their perspectives and the newest developments.

 

How to implement appropriate management and monitoring interventions by:

  • Understanding the trends, standards, and expectations of monitoring and reporting on extractive industry impacts on communities
  • Learning how to effectively use the leading tools required to manage these impacts
  • Exploring how to mitigate extractive-related impacts on communities, including but not limited to: land take, local employment, security, mine closure, livelihood destruction, water, artisanal small-scale miners, and community safety
  • Developing generic social management and monitoring plans
  • Understanding the relationship between management responses and an organisation's structure and culture
  • Exploring the variety and components of management and monitoring plans for specific extractive-related impacts, such as Resettlement Action Plan, Local Employment Plan, Grievance Management Plan/Procedure
  • Monitoring indicators, data collection, and data analysis
  • Reporting and acountability
  • Strategies to sustain personal well-being in the management and monitoring of complex community issues
