Introduction to the Campaigns

A campaign in the context of the land access and compensation module is a concept which allows planning for a series of strategic engagements pertaining to a specific land access activity. For example, it could be a plan to sensitise the local population on the upcoming work and on the overall land access and compensation process, prior to commencing with the field survey activities. It could also be the plan to organise negotiations on the rates or process.

The Campaigns Register is a place to define strategic series of engagement and to associate them to one or more specific land requests. A campaign will have a period of application and some high level objectives. It is not mandatory to complete this step in order to achieve payment, however it is strongly recommended as this is the basis for the high level indicators on free prior and informed consent (FPIC) or equivalent pertaining to the land access activities.

 

How to work with the Campaigns Register?

From the application menu, navigate to modules > Land Access > Negotiation > campaign.

  • Planning and tracking engagements

As well as entering the essential details about the campaign in the general information tab, you will be able to indicate which team members and external stakeholders are likely to get involved by using the stakeholders tab . You are also able to link the record to existing informal consultations or meetings by using the consultations tab.
