Rights body holds hearings on socio-economic impact of killings
 
01:06
South Africa's Human Rights Commission says the commission set up to investigate the 2012 Marikana killings didn't tackle the overall socio-economic impact. 40 people, most of them miners, were killed during mining-sector violence in August 2012. Mining communities are wracked by high unemployment, a lack of proper infrastructure, a lack of participation in mining profits, and general health and safety issues. It's for this reason that the South African Human Rights Commission is holding public hearings to identify the issues and come up with possible solutions. The commission has heard from municipalities, affected communities, government departments and several mining houses.

DISCUSSION: B-BBEE impact on socio-economic development
 
09:10
The amended 2013 B-BBEE Codes intended to ensure that corporate contributions to (NGOs) and social development were more than just a 'tick-box' exercise for compliance. However, the new codes cut social development funding scores by 20 points and corporates were left not earning BEE points. As a result, small business are impacted and NGO's receive less support and are limited in their ability to help those in need. For more news, visit: sabcnews.com

What can NIDS tell us about South Africa’s socio-economic challenges?
 
05:07
How do we improve early childhood nutrition? Is the increased education of the poor inadequate? How can tertiary education meet the needs of both school leavers and the labour market? Why is the economy unable to capitalise on an increasingly educated young workforce? These are some of the vital questions that the research findings from the first four waves of the National Income Dynamics Study (NIDS) raise. The analysis in the video is based on NIDS Wave 4 Working Papers available at: http://www.nids.uct.ac.za/publications/discussion-papers/wave-4-papers NIDS is an initiative of the Department of Planning, Monitoring and Evaluation (DPME) implemented by the Southern Africa Labour and Development Research Unit (SALDRU) at the University of Cape Town (UCT). It is the first and only national longitudinal (panel) study of individuals in South Africa. With data collected from 2008, it provides unique insights into the livelihoods of South Africans over time. The study aims to facilitate evidence-based policy-making and contribute to the monitoring of policy implementation.

Socio-Economic Rights Still Eluding Marikana Communities
 
17:27
Ten months after the massacre in Marikana where 34 striking mine workers were killed. The Commission of inquiry, the Marikana Commission, commonly known as the Farlam Commission, after its lead commissioner, continues to focus on the police shootings, which resulted in the deaths of the miners. However, Fazila Farouk, executive director of The South African Civil Society Information Service (www.sacsis.org.za), speaks to John Capel, executive director of the Bench Marks Foundation that has hired advocate George Bizos to represent it at the Farlam Commission to broaden the terms of the inquiry to include the socio-economic impact of mining Marikana. According to Capel, the mining companies have caused huge hardship and suffering for the communities of Rustenberg/Marikana due to environmental degradation and the violation of human rights.

The Impact of Mining on Women
 
19:27
The Marikana massacre most certainly turned the spotlight on the women in mining communities by bringing into sharp focus the challenges facing the widows of the slain mineworkers. Fazila Farouk of SACSIS talks to Samantha Hargreaves of Womin about the broader impact of mining on women in mining communities and learns about land grabs, water grabs and the health impacts of environmental degradation and water pollution, which create an additional burden for the women behind the mineworkers. Women in mining communities, both within sender communities and recipient communities, are often also engaged in unpaid labour that subsidises the profits of big mining companies. The negative impacts of mining well outweigh any social responsibility investments made by mining corporations, contends Hargreaves.

Safeguard our Seabed
 
06:06
Since November 2014 the Centre for Environmental Rights has been working with the Safeguard our Seabed Coalition in pursuit of a moratorium on marine phosphate mining in South Africa. Bulk marine sediment mining is entirely untested and it is difficult to imagine the extent of its destructive impact. The Safeguard our Seabed Coalition, together with Green House Cartoons, has developed an animation that highlights the value, beauty and fragility of our marine environment, and also conveys the stark warnings outlined by independent environmental and socio-economic assessments: marine phosphate mining poses major risks to seabed ecosystems and our long-established, renewable fishing industry. Despite these risks, and after almost three years of advocacy, the Department of Mineral Resources has not responded to our call for a strategic environmental assessment in relation to marine phosphate mining, or taken any steps towards establishing a moratorium pending a strategic enquiry into this destructive activity. Visit our Safeguard our Seabed microsite (at https://cer.org.za/safeguard-our-seabed) to find out more about the project and the socio-economic and environmental impacts of marine phosphate mining.

What is SOCIAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT? What does SOCIAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT mean?

What is SOCIAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT? What does SOCIAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT mean? SOCIAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT meaning - SOCIAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT definition - SOCIAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT explanation. SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Social impact assessment (SIA) is a methodology to review the social effects of infrastructure projects and other development interventions. Although SIA is usually applied to planned interventions, the same techniques can be used to evaluate the social impact of unplanned events, for example disasters, demographic change and epidemics. The origins of SIA largely derive from the environmental impact assessment (EIA) model, which first emerged in the 1970s in the U.S, as a way to assess the impacts on society of certain development schemes and projects before they go ahead - for example, new roads, industrial facilities, mines, dams, ports, airports, and other infrastructure projects. In the United States under the National Environmental Policy Act, social impact assessments are federally mandated and performed in conjunction with environmental impact assessments. SIA has been incorporated into the formal planning and approval processes in several countries, in order to categorize and assess how major developments may affect populations, groups, and settlements. Though the social impact assessment has long been considered subordinate to the environmental impact assessment, new models, such as the Environmental Social Impact Assessment (ESIA), take a more integrated approach where equal weight is given to both the social and environmental impact assessments. Definitions for "social impact assessment" vary by different sectors and applications. According to the International Association for Impact Assessment, "Social impact assessment includes the processes of analyzing, monitoring and managing the intended and unintended social consequences, both positive and negative, of planned interventions (policies, programs, plans, projects) and any social change processes invoked by those interventions. Its primary purpose is to bring about a more sustainable and equitable biophysical and human environment." SIA's originate from the 1970's and were originally used in Anglo-Saxon environments with indigenous peoples, like the United States, Canada and Australia. Use of SIA's, in general in combination with Environmental Impact Assessments (ESIA) has since then developed, and are legally required in many other countries, ranging from development countries like Sierra Leone and Chad, emerging markets like Chili and Philippines but also other OECD countries like Greenland and South Africa. Increased pressure on available land and increasingly educated and competent local communities can lead to high costs for public acceptance of complex projects with adverse risks and effects. SIA's are increasingly seen as an effective instrument to bring these costs down by determining views of affected communities on risks, effects and mitigation measures based on a sound socio-economic baseline study. The IFC Performance Standards are generally seen as the benchmark for ESIA's and insert this in an overarching Envrironmental and Social Risk Management System, which is based on proven risk management techniques. The IFC Performance Standard is used by multinational companies and commercial investors. Commercial banks have united themselves under the Equator Principles with over 90 members in 37 countries. SIA overlaps with monitoring and evaluation (M&E). Evaluation is particularly important in the areas of: 1. public policy, 2. health and education initiatives, and 3. international development projects more generally, whether conducted by governments, international donors, or NGOs. In all these sectors, there is a case for conducting SIA and evaluations at different stages. The Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol is a sector specific method for checking the quality of environmental and social assessments and management plans. ....

ArmeniaTVnews Report on Albion Project Launch at Ararat Plant, 6 July 2011
 
02:43
GeoProMining Launches Construction of Innovative Processing Technology at Ararat Gold Extraction Plant 6 July 2011, Yerevan -- GeoProMining ("GPM" or "the Company"), a diversified international mining group, held a groundbreaking ceremony for the new gold extraction line at the Ararat gold extraction plant attended by the President of the Republic of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan. The unique Albion gold ore processing technology is part of a major capital expenditure program by GPM to upgrade its Armenian assets, with the aim of improving efficiency while maintaining high environmental protection standards. The total investment into GPM Gold currently planned for the next three years is approximately USD 100 million. To date, GPM has invested approximately USD 260 million into the acquisition and modernization of its Armenian assets. The Albion technology, developed by Xstrata Technology (Australia) with the support of Core Process Engineering (Australia) is expected to enable the company to significantly increase gold extraction from sulphide-bearing ore from the Zod mine and increase its gold production to an estimated 150,000 oz per annum. The modernization program adheres to strict international environmental standards. This has been confirmed by leading experts in environmental impact assessment including Fraser Alexander (South Africa), Epoch (South Africa) and Digby Wells Environment (South Africa). GPM has also hired Snowden (Australia) to develop an efficient mining plan for the Zod mine. All necessary licenses and permits from the Armenian authorities are currently being processed in compliance with the local regulations. GPM plans to complete this investment project by 2013. At the groundbreaking ceremony GPM CEO Roman Khudoley said: "It is an honour to begin construction of this new workshop at the Ararat gold extraction plant in the presence of President Sargsyan and other senior governmental officials. It is of strategic importance to us that our business growth takes into account the interests of all stakeholders. We are confident that our investments in increasing the efficiency and capacity of our assets will support the socio-economic development of the regions and communities in which we operate. Our team has a wealth of experience in successfully implementing complex mining industry projects. We are confident that their professionalism and experience, combined with the leading international experts we have brought in, will help us to successfully complete the project on time and on budget." The planned investments in the Ararat plant are expected to enable GPM Gold to process higher volumes of ore from the Zod mine without the need to construct any additional processing facilities at the mine itself. Based on thorough testing of ore from the Zod mine GPM decided to implement a solution that will significantly increase the gold extraction coefficient. The company is also investing into minimising its impact on the environment. The Albion technology, which is capable of efficiently extracting gold from sulphide-bearing ore, was first successfully implemented in the Dominican Republic, and the new workshop in Armenia will be the second to adopt this technology.

"The wars in Liberia destroyed and arrested social development to the extent that the infrastructure was destroyed, the schools were destroyed and so were the hospitals. The current development strategy of Liberia is the agenda for transformation. The main challenges to education remain accessibility. We need additional schools, we need to rehabilitate schools that were destroyed during the civil war and we need to provide properly trained teachers", Aneas Chuma, UNDP Resident Representative, Liberia. In Mozambique "IT'S AFRICA'S TIME" meets with Brasilian mining giant Vale to learn about the company's inclusive business strategies around mining and infrastructure; as well as the impacts of its investments in rail logistics for the region's socio economic development. "Vale's mission is to transform natural resources in economic development. There is no operation if we don't have sustainable development for people and for the environment," says Ricardo Saad, CEO of Vale Mozambique. Operations Manager, Altiberto Bandau, adds "It is not enough that you have an island of excellence inside the mine, if you have a sea of poverty outside the mine. And that's our philosophy. Our license to operate is much more than a license given by the government. It is actually given by society." Socio-economic growth and development in Malawi, is contingent on investment in infrastructural assets. "IT'S AFRICA'S TIME" travels to Southern Malawi and Likoma Island to observe the impact of Mota-Engil's extensive road rehabilitation programs. The Chikhwawa--Bangula road is a very important resource as it is a north-south corridor and provides access to border of Mozambique in the South, and subsequently affords land-locked Malawi with access to the sea. Says Gilberto Rodrigues, CEO of Mota-Engil Africa, "by building lots of roads in these locations, we contribute directly and indirectly to the alleviation of poverty. By improving the road conditions, transportation becomes cheaper and the people immediately gain competitiveness in the marketplace and benefit from fast access for goods and travel."

GeoProMining Launches Construction of Innovative Processing Technology at Ararat Gold Extraction Plant 6 July 2011, Yerevan -- GeoProMining ("GPM" or "the Company"), a diversified international mining group, held a groundbreaking ceremony for the new gold extraction line at the Ararat gold extraction plant attended by the President of the Republic of Armenia Serzh Sargsyan. The unique Albion gold ore processing technology is part of a major capital expenditure program by GPM to upgrade its Armenian assets, with the aim of improving efficiency while maintaining high environmental protection standards. The total investment into GPM Gold currently planned for the next three years is approximately USD 100 million. To date, GPM has invested approximately USD 260 million into the acquisition and modernization of its Armenian assets. The Albion technology, developed by Xstrata Technology (Australia) with the support of Core Process Engineering (Australia) is expected to enable the company to significantly increase gold extraction from sulphide-bearing ore from the Zod mine and increase its gold production to an estimated 150,000 oz per annum. The modernization program adheres to strict international environmental standards. This has been confirmed by leading experts in environmental impact assessment including Fraser Alexander (South Africa), Epoch (South Africa) and Digby Wells Environment (South Africa). GPM has also hired Snowden (Australia) to develop an efficient mining plan for the Zod mine. All necessary licenses and permits from the Armenian authorities are currently being processed in compliance with the local regulations. GPM plans to complete this investment project by 2013. At the groundbreaking ceremony GPM CEO Roman Khudoley said: "It is an honour to begin construction of this new workshop at the Ararat gold extraction plant in the presence of President Sargsyan and other senior governmental officials. It is of strategic importance to us that our business growth takes into account the interests of all stakeholders. We are confident that our investments in increasing the efficiency and capacity of our assets will support the socio-economic development of the regions and communities in which we operate. Our team has a wealth of experience in successfully implementing complex mining industry projects. We are confident that their professionalism and experience, combined with the leading international experts we have brought in, will help us to successfully complete the project on time and on budget." The planned investments in the Ararat plant are expected to enable GPM Gold to process higher volumes of ore from the Zod mine without the need to construct any additional processing facilities at the mine itself. Based on thorough testing of ore from the Zod mine GPM decided to implement a solution that will significantly increase the gold extraction coefficient. The company is also investing into minimising its impact on the environment. The Albion technology, which is capable of efficiently extracting gold from sulphide-bearing ore, was first successfully implemented in the Dominican Republic, and the new workshop in Armenia will be the second to adopt this technology.

Director: Jac Williams Director of Photography: Kobus Louw Producer: Jac Williams Scriptwriter & Researcher: Joanna Tomkins Head of Post: Jacques Le Roux Sound and Final Mix: Adriaan Drotsché Agency: Regency Production House: Man Makes a Picture www.manmakesapicture.co.za "IT'S AFRICA'S TIME" starts in Liberia, where AECOM is focused on the country's education infrastructure and is working together with Government, the World Bank and NGO Plan International to build 67 schools by 2015. "The wars in Liberia destroyed and arrested social development to the extent that the infrastructure was destroyed, the schools were destroyed and so were the hospitals. The current development strategy of Liberia is the agenda for transformation. The main challenges to education remain accessibility. We need additional schools, we need to rehabilitate schools that were destroyed during the civil war and we need to provide properly trained teachers", Aneas Chuma, UNDP Resident Representative, Liberia. In Mozambique "IT'S AFRICA'S TIME" meets with Brasilian mining giant Vale to learn about the company's inclusive business strategies around mining and infrastructure; as well as the impacts of its investments in rail logistics for the region's socio economic development. "Vale's mission is to transform natural resources in economic development. There is no operation if we don't have sustainable development for people and for the environment," says Ricardo Saad, CEO of Vale Mozambique. Operations Manager, Altiberto Bandau, adds "It is not enough that you have an island of excellence inside the mine, if you have a sea of poverty outside the mine. And that's our philosophy. Our license to operate is much more than a license given by the government. It is actually given by society." Socio-economic growth and development in Malawi, is contingent on investment in infrastructural assets. "IT'S AFRICA'S TIME" travels to Southern Malawi and Likoma Island to observe the impact of Mota-Engil's extensive road rehabilitation programs. The Chikhwawa--Bangula road is a very important resource as it is a north-south corridor and provides access to border of Mozambique in the South, and subsequently affords land-locked Malawi with access to the sea. Says Gilberto Rodrigues, CEO of Mota-Engil Africa, "by building lots of roads in these locations, we contribute directly and indirectly to the alleviation of poverty. By improving the road conditions, transportation becomes cheaper and the people immediately gain competitiveness in the marketplace and benefit from fast access for goods and travel."
