Extensive Practical Experience
We know clients require assistance from consultants who not only have experience writing reports and preparing action plans, but who have implemented projects on the ground.
Our personnel have managed projects from A-Z, from the assessment stage through consultations and negotiations, planning and implementation.
We know what it takes to meet best practice in a practical way that meets project objectives, whilst enabling impacts on communities to be addressed – we walk the talk.
Our extensive international experience allows us to reflect on lessons learned and apply our experiences to the development of pragmatic and appropriate solutions, in accordance with project location and requirements, national laws and international standards.
Familiarity with and Commitment to International Best Practice
Our personnel are thoroughly familiar with the standards and requirements of the International Finance Corporation, Equator Principle Banks as well as other institutions like the EBRD.
We provide training to company corporate and operations managers and staff in the application of international standards and effective management of social risks.
Our team has been at the forefront of developing new best practice approaches in social management and land access and resettlement. SRA brings this experience to projects and is committed to continuous innovation.
Stakeholder Engagement and Teamwork
We strongly believe in active stakeholder engagement throughout the project process (internally and externally), and believe that the best, most cost effective and sustainable solutions come from an approach that fully engages all stakeholders.
SRA brings its extensive experience to bear on all its projects, but does not believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. We know that each project has unique characteristics that must be fully understood in order to develop appropriate solutions.
Focus on Capacity-Building of Local Teams
SRA generally works in mixed client / consultant teams to plan and implement projects.
This ensures that the client’s social team fully understands and owns the process and their capacity is built to manage issues.
