Environmental and Social Studies
Our 35 specialists come from all regions of Guinea. They have an intimate knowledge of their environment, customs and languages. Thanks to this proximity, we can assist you in understanding and managing the challenges of your projects.
In the context of impact studies (ESIAs), this knowledge of environments and communities, combined with highly participatory methods, enables us to propose socially accepted solutions that reconcile the legitimate interests of communities as well as your imperatives.
SEES has a long experience in designing and implementing impact monitoring and evaluation systems, both in the framework of Environmental and Social Management Plans (ESMPs) and in those of economic and social development projects.
We can also meet your specific data collection and processing needs in the following areas:
- Physical environment (Topography, air quality, noise, vibrations…).
- Biological environment (fauna, flora, ecosystem services…).
- Cultural environment (Cultural Heritage).
- Social and socio-economic environment (Population and demography, health, activities, public services…).
All our studies are fully computerised, from data acquisition in fieldwork to the production of results.
Realization of action plans, relocation and compensation plans
A properly conducted Relocation and Compensation Action Plan (RAP) is the assurance of fluidity in the implementation of your installation projects.
Extensive computerisation of procedures developed over the course of a wide variety of missions allows flexibility in adapting to your requirements while respecting the interests and values of the communities.
Thanks to our team of local experts and a very long expertise in community relations, through its experience in the management of grievances and disputes between communities and public or private actors, SEES helps you in achieving your economic objectives and deadlines as well as in your relationship with local communities and institutions.
