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.
