Community Affairs Policy Statement


WPE shall generally conduct her operation in a way that would recognize the need for a cordial working relationship with host communities. WPE shall develop a Community Affairs Programme for all localities of a new project likely to have an impact on the host communities.

The Community Affairs Programme shall note areas of likely friction during the execution of the project and proffer solutions to them. We shall maintain sound public relations with a host community and shall employ available local labour for project requiring such employment. WPE shall also assist in community development projects where such assistance is justified by obvious need and encouraged by project magnitude.

WPE and her staff shall maintain a low profile and shall not exhibit unnecessary or arrogant display of affluence at the community level to avoid aggravation of the existing feeling of neglect in these communities and to avoid unreasonable demands being generated wherefrom.
