SOCIAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT AND SOCIAL MANAGEMENT PLANS

The social impact assessment includes the identification and assessment of the consequences, positives, and negatives, for people and communities produced by the development of a project or business activity. At the same time, it includes the mechanisms for the identification and attention of those impacts that have not been foreseen at the beginning of projects or business activities and the systems for their adequate monitoring. It also includes the design of social management plans for the prevention, mitigation and attention of negative impacts, and expansion of the positive ones.
