CSRM's dedicated Community Relations Practitioner Unit - ComRel - has released a public report from a Community Relations (CR) Practitioner Roundtable held in South East Asia last month. The Practitioner Roundtable, co-facilitated by ComRel and Insitu Development Consulting (IDC), and supported by the International Finance Corporation's Compliance Adviser Ombudsman (IFC CAO), provided an opportunity for CR practitioners in mining from across South East Asia to share experiences with each other, and with a global audience, through the production of a public report. CR practitioners represented mining projects and operations from Lao PDR, Thailand, Cambodia, The Philippines and Indonesia. A practitioner from Mongolia also participated. "Through ComRel, CSRM remains committed to researching the challenges and complexities associated with CR work in mining and providing opportunities for practitioners to network, connect and learn from each other," ComRel leader Dr Deanna Kemp said. ComRel will endeavour to hold a number of other Practitioner Roundtables in 2014.
