Indigenous People’s Consultation Program, Stakeholder Engagement Plan and Community Investment Strategy for an Onshore Oil and Gas Exploration Project in and around Indigenous Community Reserves, Colombia

Acorn International led a complex stakeholder engagement and community investment program for an onshore exploration project including an expansive 2-D seismic survey in a rural area of eastern Colombia.

The project area included 14 indigenous group territories plus communities with refugees, rebel groups, paramilitaries and people engaged in the illegal cultivation and processing of coca.

Acorn International and its Colombian partner were responsible for designing and helping to lead the stakeholder/community engagement plan, community investment strategy and indigenous people “prior consultation program” in accordance with Colombian law, company standards, and best practices from the World Bank, Inter-American Commission on Human Rights, and related organizations.

We began this work by organizing and facilitating a community relations and investment planning workshop, and convened an expert panel to help provide assurance and direction of stakeholder engagement on the project.
