Above-ground risk

Stakeholder identification and analysis

We provided an extractives company with support in identifying and analysing individual and organisational-level stakeholders in a new jurisdiction where the client was looking to expand its assets and operations.

  • Challenge

    A publicly listed mining major contracted our country risk consultants to help the firm understand networks of cooperative/hostile relationships that might positively/adversely affect investments in a potential new frontier market.

  • Solution

    Through a combination of in-country research coupled with deep sectorial expertise, we furnished the client with a recommended framework for understanding the power, positions and perspectives of individual and organisational-level stakeholders.

  • Outcome

    Armed with this intelligence, the client was able to: i) gauge structural drivers/buffers to potential operating environment change; ii) map and rank stakeholders’ relevance and influence; iii) inform their government relations/lobbying strategy.
