Social Assessment and Development Planning
Earth Systems has been incorporating social assessment into our environmental assessment work for over a decade. Particularly in the developing country context, we consider social assessment to be an equal and essential component of EIA.
Our team is experienced in qualitative and quantitative social research and survey techniques. Having undertaken social assessments in a variety of countries, we have developed an approach that we can replicate, yet still tailor to the individual circumstances of a project.
Our goal is to provide clients with detailed, accurate socio-economic information and an understanding of the local situation to support the development of social management and mitigation programs. We also work with companies, investors and communities to ensure that local people are able to realise the potential benefits of a project. Through sound assessment, effective implementation of social development programs, regular consultation and participatory development planning, we aim to ensure that our clients receive a ‘Social License to Operate.’
