Community Engagement

 

Strengthening Communities

The developers of the Ayitepa Wind Farm are committed to include the population and communities living around the wind farm.

Any concerns or misconceptions shall be elicited and addressed directly. A good information policy is our key to a transparent project development. We assure that the locals get to know the developers, have access to relevant and up to date information and are informed about the project’s progress and outcomes. Besides, it is important that the communities see the benefits the project can bring for their own lives as well as its national importance in aiding to resolve the energy crisis in Ghana.

Transparent and easily accessible information

Benefits for everyone trough community projects

Besides the general benefits from the wind park (job creation, land lease income, improved infrastructure, etc.), additional community projects sponsored by Ayitepa Wind Farm shall improve the livelihoods and ensure that all targeted people are benefitting. Therefore, consultation is in progress, which aims to identify the needs of the local people in order to plan appropriate projects. For the time being, refurbishment programs for 3 local schools were completed, sponsored by Lekela. This website will keep you up-to-date about the implementation of these and also other projects.

International Principles are the basis

Community Engagement needs to be founded on sound principles and best practice. Therefore, our Community Engagement Plan takes into account the 1998 Aarhus Convention that deals with decision-making on environmental matters, the Values of the International Association for Public Participation (IAP2), the Equator Principles and the IFC Performance Standards.
