Need for a Social Safeguards Consultant

A growing number of nations are putting safeguards into practice through a variety of investment planning, policies, and rules provided by social safeguards consultancy in an effort to promote more sustainable development. In an effort to avoid creating unnecessary work for project sponsors or requirements that conflict with one another, safeguard policies frequently rely on internationally recognized standards and guidelines.

Various voluntary standards have recently been created to address the environmental and social safeguards required for particular sectors, commodities, and actors. Our areas of expertise include social development, land acquisition, forced relocation, indigenous issues, and policy analysis.

How can our Social Safeguards Consultancy benefit you?

In order to determine whether new potential investments are consistent with agency policies and national operational priorities, all of the major multilateral organizations that provide funding for agriculture and rural development screen new proposals early in the programming cycle. All investment proposals must undergo mandatory social screening to determine whether or not they are likely to trigger any safeguards in those who have social safeguard policies. Here is where we come into play.

The acquisition of land and assets and forced relocation due to infrastructure development are the two most significant social safeguard issues, followed by (ii) indigenous peoples' participation and inclusion (discussed in more detail below). The affordability of public services, workers who have been laid off, and people who depend on the forest are other social safeguards concerns. We offer sustainable consulting, help with technical issues, and advice in the areas of both social and environmental safeguards.


The majority of safeguard systems use a categorization system to identify environmental and social risks, which is a key component of these systems. This is done early on in the project cycle at our agency, and it's known as environmental and social screening.
