Every corporate is aware of the challenges of starting a new project in a country as complex as India. Political, social, media and cultural barriers can often hinder a project, if the risks are not appreciated and catered to from the very beginning.
Opposition from impacted stakeholders can affect project timelines and costs, drastically altering the original plan.
On many occasions, large projects involving billions of dollars in investment are delayed or sometimes even abandoned due to opposition from project affected communities or local politicians and activists.
Most corporates often react too little, too late. The cost of such delays and poor communications is immense. Project promoters more often than not deliver one-sided communication without understanding the cultural, economic and political sensitivities of the affected people.
Adfactors PR has the experience of understanding the concerns of project affected stakeholders. We develop engagement and communication programs that can create a proper understanding and acceptance of the project. Proactive engagement, consultation and communications with stakeholders can substantially reduce project risks.
Our consultants work at the project sites to engage the local communities, opinion makers and media.
