Stakeholder engagement as part of the Pwalugu multipurpose dam project in Ghana.

Ensuring sustainability for local communities

The proposed multipurpose dam at Pwalugu will benefit the region's population in terms of irrigation development and flood management as well as power generation.

Many local people live subsistence lifestyles. We are conducting a series of social and environmental studies to assess the possible impacts of the project on their livelihoods and identify mitigation measures.

Stakeholder engagement and public consultations underpin all our activities. To date, more than 130 individual meetings have been held with government representatives, traditional authorities (chiefs and their elders) and non-governmental organisations.

More than a dozen focus groups and public meetings have also been held, attended by hundreds of villagers.

Client: Volta River Authority - financing from French Development Agency

Expertise: Environmental and social impact assessment, including stakeholder engagement
