Natural Resource Management & Extractive Industries

ATR leverages its experience assessing conflicts and promoting good governance to offer unique insights for those involved with extractive industries. ATR has worked with private sector firms, NGOs, governmental agencies and intergovernmental organizations on the topic—including by facilitating focus group discussions with the affected communities and interviewing key informants—and understands the interests and concerns of the many stakeholders involved.

ATR has experience offering site-specific conflict and fragility assessments, simultaneously gauging and offering means to improve community resilience. For both firms and governments, ATR offers guidance on best practices for socially inclusive outreach and the establishment of grievance redressal mechanisms.

Past projects include:

  • A desk review, organizational assessment and stakeholder mapping for GIZ aimed at promoting good governance.
  • A series of three site-specific conflict and fragility assessments for the World Bank.
  • The development of a white paper on investment in the extractive industries for Harakat.
