Socio-Economic Research & AnalysisJPCSL provides a suite of socio-economic consulting services, tailored to the individual contexts we work in.

& Corporate Social ResponsibilityCommunicating with stakeholders is an essential part of earning a social licence to operate. While stakeholders can be diverse and not always easy to identify, sustainable development requires that dialogue be initiated with all relevant parties so that acceptable solutions can be devised. Stakeholder analysis and mapping is one of the first steps an organization should take, to be followed by more detailed management planning and communication.
Regulatory SupportMany of our services are provided in support of regulatory applications for proposed development projects. These are important periods in the life of any project, whereby government officials and other stakeholders carefully review a project’s environmental, social, and economic aspects. Organizations must subsequently demonstrate their understanding of these issues and their ability to effectively manage them.
