ERM Tanzania Office Launch: A Discussion on Global Megatrends & ESG Risks

Thursday, 9 November 2017
18h30

To celebrate the launch of ERM’s office in Tanzania, we will be hosting an evening of networking with clients from a number of industries.

The evening will involve the sharing of ERM’s perspectives on global megatrends as well as the main environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks to major capital projects within Tanzania.

ERM is presently working with both project developers and financiers in East Africa, and indeed across Africa, to address such non-technical risks throughout the transaction and project lifecycle. Join us for an interactive discussion where we can share our insights into the challenges associated with managing non-technical risks in major capital projects, with particular attention being paid to the following risks in the Tanzanian context:

  • Biodiversity
  • Resettlement
  • Water
  • Stakeholder Perceptions and Expectations
  • Job Creation
  • Community Health, Safety and Security

Dinner will be served following the discussion, which will also provide the opportunity to network with industry peers. This event is invitation only - for more information on attending, please contact Merle Finch at merle.finch@erm.com.
