Many companies have developed sophisticated project management systems and processes to conceptualise, plan and implement construction projects. The same companies have become adept in managing project risks. However, these companies have ignored to either include community engagement as part of the project planning process or to regard community risk as part of project risk.

The perceptions of social marginalisation and feelings of exclusion by communities are aggravated by the lack of or inadequate public service delivery. Therefore, it is of critical importance for project managers to recognise local communities as key and direct stakeholders of a project. In an environment of social activism, the exclusion or inclusion of communities as stakeholders can be a key determining factor as to whether such projects fail or succeed.


This course will cover all the practical aspects of community engagement during the planning, implementation and evaluation of construction projects. The course will include the following key focus areas:

Understanding the Project Context

Social, political and economic factor

The Stake of Communities in Projects

What makes local communities stakeholders in a project?

The Community Consultation Process

Community dynamics

Community engagement

Project Social Risk Management

Identification, analysis and mitigation of community risk
