Social Impact Assessment
Whether it is a standalone social impact assessment or a component of Environmental and Social Impact Assessment, SRM prepares SIA reports in line with international standards. SRM defines the social impact area of the project, describes the social baseline through fieldwork complemented by secondary data collection, identifies potential impacts, and develops mitigation strategies for potentially adverse impacts, and delivers a social management and monitoring plan for management of identified social issues.
Stakeholder Engagement Plan
Stakeholder Engagement plan is a key tool for effective stakeholder participation throughout Project phases. Stakeholder engagement plan provides stakeholder identification and mapping, describes engagement methods, issues and timeline, describes grievance mechanism to ensure all grievances are registered and responded to, in a timely manner.
Resettlement Action Plan (RAP)
For investments that entail land acquisition , RAP depicts land acquisition related impacts that may trigger physical resettlement or economic displacement. RAP depicts Project Affected Persons (PAPs), Project’s land acquisition strategy, national and international legal framework, establishes the socioeconomic background, provides census of assets and PAPs, describes impacts, presents entitlement matrix, portrays stakeholder consultation and grievance mechanism, develops a monitoring and evaluation strategy, presents budget, and timeline for implementation. SRM prepares RAPs in line with international standards. Standards implemented by SRM for RAP preparation includes World Bank Operational Policies (prior to 2018) and Environmental and Social Sustainability (2018), EBRD Environmental and Social Sustainability (2014, 2019), IFC Performance Standards, and EIB Environmental and Social Standards.
