Prevent conflict, preserve value.
At Secure Pointe don't just say we care about preventing costly conflict with local communities, we have invested in it. Since 2013 we have funded the development, testing, and implementation of a holistic approach to understanding and mitigating the risk of conflicts with local communities from major infrastructure projects. We have a proprietary, coevolutionary model inspired by complexity theory and developed with inputs from social scientists, extractive sector industry experts, and security experts that is designed to help our clients understand and quantify where true friction points are with local communities and respond proactively.
QUANTIFY RISKS OVER TIME
Our Local Community Risk Management model (LCRM) allows our clients to quantify changes in the components of risk, as they evolve over time. This provides the substantive input that allows our clients to successfully allocated risk management resources over time to proactively manage and reduce risk, rather than passively responding to incidents.
Our LCRM consultants are specially selected for a high level of cross-cultural competency, and a diverse skill set that includes expertise in development and community relations, industry familiarity, language ability, and the training and skills to manage their security in marginal environments using "soft skills." All of our consultants have a track record of success in cross-cultural, high pressure situations.
One of the primary reasons conflicts develop with local communities near major infrastructure projects is, despite good intentions, failure to respect the coevolutionary nature of the risk situation. Our LCRM model uses a resilient, safe-to-fail methodology that allows our risk management strategy to evolve and adapt alongside the changing complexion of risk on the ground.
