Community Rights and Expectations in Natural Resource Development

Directed by Luke Danielson

The programme for this workshop will include both exercises designed to illustrate practical problems and suggest solutions, and understanding of the rapidly evolving legal framework in these areas:

  • The growth of the community role in major natural resource projects over recent decades
  • The evolution of the consultation requirement, EIA and SEIA
  • Asymmetry in capacity of parties to the process
  • Community foundations as a means of capturing sustainable benefits
  • Impact/Benefit Agreements, Community Development Agreements: what do these look like, and how are they negotiated?
  • Community co-ownership of projects
  • Special issues of indigenous and tribal communities
  • Human rights considerations
  • Simulated negotiation exercise
  • Emerging models for sustainable development of resources: how can we do this better?
