Supporting and sustaining family-centred development:  A rapid analysis of the Family Accompaniment Program at Rio Tinto La Granja, Peru.

From the 21-25th of January 2012, Dr Deanna Kemp, Principal Research Fellow, and Ms Rebekah Ramsay, Research Analyst, from the Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining (CSRM) completed a rapid analysis of Rio Tinto La Granja Project’s Family Accompaniment Program in Peru. The Family Accompaniment Program is a pilot project and represents a substantive attempt by a mining company – early in the project development cycle – to adopt an explicit anti-poverty strategy within their resettlement and livelihood restoration plan.

Project Aims

  • to explore the degree to which dialogic and participatory development approaches are being used in the program
  • to explore the effects this approach to land access is having on company-community relationships
  • to assess organisational factors associated with using this approach to development.
