SOCAP 2020 Virtual Conference – “Respecting Communities’ Rights Throughout the Investment Cycle”

From agriculture to renewable energy, respecting local communities’ rights can have significant impacts on businesses. However, meaningfully engaging communities in due diligence, negotiation, monitoring, and grievance redress is easier said than done. In this session, panelists will share powerful stories of community-business engagement in Asia and Africa. We’ll discuss the importance of independent legal and technical support, and what role responsible investors could play to bring their human rights and environmental performance standards to life.
