Community Engagement – A Getting Started Toolkit for Exploration and Development Companies

This toolkit is targeted at managers and mining professionals. It offers practical guidance and in-field engagement support. The tools include:
  • Questionnaires to evaluate your local context,
  • A material issues checklist,
  • A template to track engagement,
  • Sample maps to help assess your area of influence (AOI),
  • A risk assessment tool, and
  • A checklist and feedback form to supplement your stakeholder analysis.
While the guidance is specific to practitioners in the field of materials extraction, most of the tools - which can be downloaded separately - should be useful to practitioners doing stakeholder engagement in any industry.
