SIA and Management: focus on fracking
10 November 2016 - 07 November 2016
Glasgow, Europe
The training program is designed to have an effective blend of instruction and participatory process. The experiences of the participants are utilised by encouraging personal contribution and discussion. Learning is facilitated through the use of break-out groups and a structured case-study exercise. A range of resources and learning formats are used. The course provides frameworks and tools to consider issues such social & business risk assessment, social impact management plans, sustainable livelihoods, human rights, gender, free, prior and informed consent, agreement-making, cumulative impacts, benefit-sharing, grievance mechanisms, and highlights emerging trends. The morning starts by introducing the key principles of SIA and it then provides an SIA process ‘refresher’ or ‘refiner’, with a collective review and shared learning of the SIA process. The afternoon focuses on the real and practical issues facing SIA and practitioners today, in projects that apply fracking techniques.
