Event Description

Designed to help you understand and manage the high stake risks and complexities that resettlement brings to your business, to host governments and to the communities that may be affected, this workshop is organized ahead of PDAC and will be a convenient and cost-effective way to grow your skills. The principal instructors will come from rePlan, a firm that has pioneered resettlement work around extractive and industrial projects for the last two decades, supplemented by contributions from leading thinkers and practitioners from Queen’s University, Triple R Alliance and Both Sides Now Consulting, as well as representatives from a number of major mining companies that have dealt with complex resettlement challenges.

Topics and Themes

  • Scoping a potential or actual resettlement situation.
  • Developing a resettlement road map and budget, from scoping through planning and implementation to post-move monitoring and evaluation.
  • Developing eligibility requirements for compensation and resettlement.
  • Dealing with population influx and speculative risks.
  • Planning for land access and displacement, including surveying, engagement and negotiation, livelihood restoration, managing expectations and resolving grievances.
  • Implementing a resettlement, including tricky issues such as agreement-making, design and construction of new communities, managing the move, handover and post move monitoring.
  • Anticipating and addressing additional challenges of resettlement in zones of weak governance where the risk of conflict may be high.

The workshop takes place just before the start of PDAC’s 2015 Annual Convention.
