Measuring what matters: monitoring and evaluating the social performance of mining projects Leading companies are now taking a more strategic approach to managing community impacts and there is a greater focus on delivering sustainable socio-economic benefits to communities and regions. However, most mining projects still have only a very limited capacity to monitor and assess their impacts on an ongoing basis and to evaluate what return they are getting on their social investments. This makes it difficult for mining companies to demonstrate to external stakeholders that they are adding economic and social value. Inadequate attention to monitoring also means that companies often lack critical information on whether social programs they manage or fund are delivering the desired outcomes. In the community development field, it is now routine for programs and projects to be monitored and evaluated. This workshop will draw on experiences from this field, as well as work that the Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining has undertaken within the mining sector, to provide practical guidance to practitioners and managers on how they monitoring and evaluation capability of their organisations can be strengthened.
