SRA is pleased to announce the launch of the latest Insight Series, focusing on Gender Mainstreaming in Land Access & Resettlement, prepared by our Gender Expert Elisabet Torà.

Gender mainstreaming is critical for projects to deliver more successful land access and resettlement, and is becoming increasingly significant for financial institutions and industry organizations. However, much remains to be done to ensure a comprehensive gender-informed approach to managing physical and economic displacement, beyond mere tokenism. The 10-part Gender Mainstreaming Series aims to help projects take practical steps to ensure that vulnerabilities related to women and sexual and gender minorities are adequately addressed throughout the land access and resettlement stakeholder engagement, assessment, planning, implementation, and monitoring & evaluation process.

Issue 1 provides an overview of gender cross-cutting and intersectional approaches, and the need to mainstream gender into the assessment, planning, implementation and monitoring, and evaluation of land access and resettlement projects.

​Introduction to the SRA Blog Series

SRA’s Land Access & Resettlement Insight Series looks at the key steps in the land access and resettlement process, from project assessment and planning through to negotiations and into implementation (physical resettlement, livelihoods restoration and moves) and monitoring & evaluation. The series also looks at important related topics including government-led resettlement, cultural heritage management, land management and benefit sharing & community investment.

In light of the Global Tailings Standard, SRA has also published a 2 Part Tailings Storage Facility and Resettlement Insight Series examining the role of resettlement in relation to TSF management. The Series aims to help project proponents, mine owners, land access and resettlement practitioners, communities and other interested parties understand how displacement impacts and resettlement can be properly considered and handled within the broader context of effectively assessing and managing tailing storage facility (TSF) risks and consequences to communities, be these in relation to existing or planned TSFs.

Stakeholder Engagement. Social Impact Assessment. Land Access & Resettlement. Livelihoods.

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.

International Experience

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.

Innovative Approaches

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.

Tailor-made Solutions

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.

Our personnel have worked extensively worldwide, from Armenia to Zambia, for clients including the World Bank Group, EBRD, ICMM, KfW, DEG, Newmont, Newcrest, Gold Fields, Iamgold, Rio Tinto, Shell, BG, and Exxon Mobil to name a few.
