Mining and metals, Canada Community investment planning
EEM worked with a major copper mining and refining operation to devise a system for participatory prioritisation of multi-year community investment spending.
Approach and Solution
The mandate involved engagement with key stakeholder groups in the community in order to identify and prioritise key issues. Community priorities were then cross-referenced with regional planning objectives and the client’s business strategy to arrive at a 3-year community investment plan which was approved by a multi-stakeholder governance committee.
This project provided the client better alignment between community investment priorities and the needs of the community and opened a channel for continuous dialogue with stakeholders for future community investment planning.
