View the Full Schedule for 2014
Please join us for our next Security, Rights & Development Roundtable (formerly the Human Rights and Business Roundtable) meeting on Tuesday, December 16, focusing on managing first contact and issues associated with Free Prior & Informed Consent (FPIC). The actions of a company in the very beginning of exploration can significantly shape community perceptions, attitudes, and expectations well into the future of a project. This Roundtable will focus on how to ensure that projects get off to a good start with all stakeholders, and how ensuring success at the beginning can help to achieve a stable operating environment in the future.
