Social Impact Assessments
social impact assessments
We work with our clients to develop rigorous Social Impact Assessments (SIA) to identify risks and opportunities that may arise from the social environment of their projects in order to anticipate and prevent conflicts and to establish strong and fruitful relationships with the communities where the projects are located. By conducting a SIA at an early stage of the project, our clients may obtain valuable information on the different factors they must take into account to guarantee the sustainability of the project and increase its probability of success in the short and long term.
At Impacto Social Consultores we develop baseline studies and assess the potential social impacts to mitigate adverse impacts and maximize the benefits of positive impacts through the effective implementation of an action plan. We follow international best practices from the IFC, IPIECA and are well aware of specific in-country requirements in Latin America.
We are members of the International Association for Impact Assessment (IAIA) and are always at the forefront of the latest developments in the field. Our consultants have unparalleled experience in a wide-array of relevant topics (i.e. demographics, economics, health, education, social development, migration, urbanization, infrastructure, etc.) that ensures a comprehensive evaluation to meet the highest standards.
