WAPCo’s Community Relations policy within its areas of operation is aimed at establishing proactive partnerships that will foster healthy, long term relationship with host communities.

 WAPCo’s objectives for this partnership are: 

  • To cultivate and sustain, trusting and harmonious relationships as well as mutually beneficial social partnership with local communities.
  • To foster good neighbourliness and ensure community goodwill and support for successful project implementation and operations.
  • To maintain open , honest and constructive dialogue with all Stakeholder Groups and  facilitate actions to manage their legitimate concerns and issues
  • To implement a sustainable Community Development Programme that will have positive impact on the living standards of people in the project affected communities.
  •  

In furtherance of these objectives, WAPCo in partnership with host communities, through a Participatory Needs Assessment study, identified “high impact” programmes that address basic needs and economic development in these communities.
