Who are we?
what do they say?
Synergy brings a wealth of experience to this first ever Africa-focused training for community relations practitioners, both at a strategic level and from a practical on-the-ground perspective.
Over the past seven years, Synergy has provided dedicated support to the Dingleton Resettlement Project. Synergy has a solid risk management approach that delivers significant value to Kumba considering the size and complexity of the project.
Synergy demonstrated tremendous commitment and creative thinking when faced with the formidable challenge of enabling community-led sustainable development.
BG Group has worked with Synergy for over eight years and values the niche expertise Synergy brings in the areas of social impact, human rights and conflict assessments and management, consultation, community agreements and training.
The Ghana EITI Validation Report produced by Synergy is excellent, concise, clear and insightful.
When we've got our next tough project in Africa, Synergy will be our first recall!
I would very much recommend Paul Kapelus and Synergy for any social responsibility assessments, reviews or field studies – their work is thorough, systematic, fair and objective. Synergy's approach is one of science and data, but I am happy to say they also have a heart!
Throughout the course of our social impact assessment in the DRC, Synergy continually demonstrated the capability to work with the complex issues and develop practical risk mitigation strategies that satisfy international standards for, amongst others, artisanal and illegal mining, indigenous people, resettlement, managing conflict and stakeholder pressure.
