Stories from our communities

All of CFM’s projects are designed and developed in an inclusive and participatory manner, with special attention paid to aspects such as stakeholder engagement, distribution of socio-economic opportunities through local content policies and recruitment, and the design and delivery of local community development programmes which are implemented by every investee.

Such programmes are designed to deliver long-lasting impact. Core areas of focus are linked to selected UN SDGs. Every project and programme is underpinned by the ethos of leaving no-one behind, in other words, of a just transition.

The stories showcased in this section of the report demonstrate some of the impacts and individual benefits of our projects in their host communities. Wherever possible, the material for these stories has been collected directly through interviews and personal engagement.

To protect the identities of the people reached by our projects, their names have been changed.
