SANTIAGO DE CHILE HOSTED TRAINING ON COMMUNITY RELATIONS MANAGEMENT

  • Professionals of Ancap, Enap, Geopark Chile, Geopark Colombia, Metrogas, and Universidad de La Frontera of Chile participated in the course "Community Relations Management and Resolution of Conflicts in the Extractive and Energy Industry," which took place in mid-April in Santiago, Chile.

    In its first edition in Chile, the purpose of the training was to provide skills to address the increasing challenges associated with the socio-environmental dynamics faced by the extractive and energy industry.

    The course is based on the Community Relations Management System of ARPEL (https://arpel.org/library/publication/342/) a management model that enables oil and gas companies in Latin America and the Caribbean to define, apply and monitor the compliance with policies of integration and engagement with communities and indigenous peoples, and to the achievement of the objectives of integration, continuance and exit from the communities, and the implementation of projects, plans and programs that guarantee the system effectiveness.

    Delivering conceptual and methodological tools to identify and understand the main socio-environmental elements that affect community relations, and transferring skills and abilities to manage the risks and impacts inherent to the industry, as well as preventing and transforming socio-environmental conflicts are also specific objectives pursued with this training.
