SOCIAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT
We recently carried out an SIA for one of Evaco’s property development schemes – which is now a legal requirement for PDS development. This included contextual analysis, quantitative analysis, field surveys, stakeholder interviews and an impact assessment.
SIAs can be useful for a host of needs: (1) garnering information and participation from communities for a development/project, (2) understanding a company’s socio-economic impact on a nation and/or community. This can inform and serve the company in numerous ways - from deciding what type of community projects to undertake to using it as a support element for negotiations with government entities or shareholders.
Dynamia can implemented different tactical waste-management interventions in Mauritius. For instance one of these interventions by our partner, the Institute of Bon Pasteur, was at Chamarel Waterfall in October 2017; where private societies, volunteers and police forces came together to get more than 800 kg of waste out of a ravine with the help of a teleferic system (cable car).
